Mark's Stories. "Only once."

Back when I was in college, I didn't date much or many. But I did go out a couple of times with a girl who was extremely smart, a bit disorganzied, and very much a "bad girl" by the standards of the environment (which wasn't much, given that this was the University of Utah).

Anyway, one night, for whatever reason, the conversation got onto recreational drugs. And she confessed she had done coke. But only once.

I noted the emphasis on the word "once" when she said it, and asked her about that.

And her explaination was that after having done coke only once, she knew that she was not able to do coke only twice.
