If your mum has been smashing back cheese, telling her book club how much she loves them and looking at the rug more intensely lately, we might just know why.
A fifty-year-old businesswoman talked to Metro about how she was looking for a way to spice up her social gatherings, so turned to some white spice to solve the problem.
“I have a strong circle of female friends, and we had tried all the latest fads, food, fashions, and destination dinner parties, but something was missing,” she said.
“We did not seem to have as much of a laugh as we did when we were younger - there always seemed to be barriers up between us.”
“So, one of our group suggested we all take MDMA together so we could open up to each other and improve our friendships,” which are the exact words anyone who has ever suggested taking MD has used when trying to get their mates on board.
Luckily, that group member just so happened to have some of the party drugs as her daughter had gifted her some - happy mother’s day! Having only ever done coke before, the MDM-mummas called one of their sons asking how they should go about taking the drug.
“I phoned my son, who told us not to sniff it but to swallow it, so we wrapped some of the powder in a cigarette paper and put it in Brie, and all took some each.”
“Nothing much happened for forty minutes, then the colours in the rug seemed to be more vivid, and before I knew it, I was in an in-depth conversation about my fantasy sex life with an old friend.”
Ahh, the power of family - one son and another daughter teamed up to help their mums freak out about a rug and have a yarn about their wildest sexual fantasies.
As crazy as it sounds, it's probably one of the safest ways to take MD.
The Global Drugs Survey says when trying MDMA for the first time, you should “ideally be with trusted friends…[and] make sure you are in a familiar and safe place,” and what safer place is there to be than surrounded by mums.
