    I felt like that once when I got hit full force between the eyes with a pool cue.

  2. Prometheus says:

    Yeah, I felt like that too. I once fell down flat on my face after swinging between a couple of tables. Cracked a tooth.

  3. Mister8Coffee says:

    Yeah I’ve been there a few times, but it took a whole bottle of Jack to get me there and it was a REAL bad time before AND after.

    Ketamine’ll get you there with one tiny line

      Or a quarter CC spiked into your thigh. Er – so I’ve heard.

      Oh my. That is more like a curvaceous slip and slide through the space-time-mind continuum with side-stops for random moments drunken with slow-motion microscopic precision alternated with meaningless epiphanies of angel/demon complexes and past-life regressions. And then the dog barks and it’s time to walk the dog. In a k-hole. On Xmas day. And that is the expurgated version. ~ 8^}>

    When I was twelveI got tackled full-force by a big, bulky teenager (Older, around seventeen or eighteen), he specifically hit me in the lower-abdomen. Not a fun place to be hit, me being a female. Perhaps that’s close to what he’s feeling, though that was more of a knock-the-breath-out-of-me-for-three-straight-days sort of deal.

    Years ago, I worked at a chemical company. While pouring a five gallon can of toluene into a vat one day, I got it all over my arms. Between the skin contact and the fumes, I know exactly where Ben’s at. Not a fun place to be; not at all.

  7. Gremlins says:

    Painting the inside of a poorly ventilated garage with industrial strength oil paint’ll get you somewhere around there, given an hour or so.

  8. E.T. the Eccentric Type says:

    He’s not going to wake up at the end of the story and realize this was a chemical-induced hallucination, is he?

  9. Jason Thorn says:

    I felt like that after catching a rock right between the eyes when I was a kid. Some jagoff threw it over the wall behind our backyard.

  10. Jeb D says:

    Sounds similar to when i was in a soccer skirmish at 10 and i kicked the ball into a very big 15 year old’s crotch and he fell on me. kinda went, kick- “oof…” “oh god” *squish*

    toluene, xylene, acetone, methyl ethyl ketone. Nothing like some volatile organic compounds to spice things up.
