Cokehead

Code 3 for seizure. Midnight.

A man is on the sidewalk, with what I can only describe as body movements characteristic of methamphetamine or PCP use. Several bystanders are standing by him.

“He looked like he was having a seizure.”

“OK. What’s this brown liquid on the ground around his head?”

“Oh, I poured some Coke on his face because he wasn’t responding.”

“Don’t do that.”

“Sorry.”

“I thought people like pouring water or rubbing alcohol on other people when they pass out, but Coke? Were you guys just looking at each other going, ‘Just pour anything on him!'”

“I won’t do that no more.”
