now they're dark brown and very unappitizing! but they're not completely mush so i'm still going to consume there's been some tropical storms down here lately, bringing lots of heavy rain to my area. thus, the shroom picking has been very very good these past couple of weeks here just north of houston. found several hundred from the same field. we made some kool aid and then i was given a baggie to take home for myself to munch on later this week. i didn't take them out of the bag as soon as i got home, as i was tripping pretty hard and my gliders were gliding about my room. the gliders like to make mischief, i think they can tell when i've got something i don't want them to get into, because they dive right into it. but when my trip started winding down and i regained some normal function, i dumped the contents of the bag and felt a slight sense of loss. they were truly superb specimens of p. cubensis, now they are icky. see? icky. ah, such is life.
