» It's not me, it's the drugs talking

Whats that in the bin?
"Whats that in the bin?" was question put to me once.
After many an evening as a teenager returning home with eyes a little reddened (as teenagers do) I would typically open something 'snacky' to cure the munchies. Whether it be a kit kat, mars bar or banana the nutritious part would be thrown into the bin whilst I'm holding the wrapper trying to look intelligent and hold down conversation, obviously not succeeding well and talking bollocks.
Yep the Banana went one night and mum just had to point out in the nicest way - why am I about to eat the skin!
