Off in the future

Question
The worst crime I've ever committed:

Answer
On my way out to Burning Man, full of excitement and anticipation, we took the longest possible way to Nevada from New York to New Orleans. Our plan was to stay only one day....no, no, not so! We took a walk through the beautiful French Quarter, through Jefferson Square, where there were tons of people performing, and being a fire performer, I wanted the attention too, so I got my toys and fuel and prepped to spin.

First, one of my travel partners, Dori, lit up. People gathered. She did her dance, and one of her spinners went out, so I lit mine. I walked out to the area as Dori walked off. A car pulls up and it's an o-so-patient officer (sarcasm). He said, "Get your ID. You're going to jail." He didn't want any explanation. So here I go in leather pants and backless halter shirt.
One minor detail. I forgot... a half-hour before I got arrested, I swallowed a tab of acid. In jail, waiting to be put into a cell, hallucinating and trying not to smile. It did help the first few hours of my stay. I got put into a cell after getting my picture taken. It was interesting, not as scary as I thought. One of my cellmates had somehow gotten pot into the cell, she contemplated smoking it.
Another girl wasn't happy, and began to yell for the cop. The girl with the pot attempted to flush it. Nope. The toilet was not flushable. It was full of puke, shit, piss and blood. The weed was floating atop, so the lonely lady shoved her hands in to try and push it under. Cops come in and drag her out by her hair and pleasant smelling hands. The rest of the stay was pretty calm and boring. It was like a long torturing wait at a motor vehicle. I waited 15 hours to go through 6 steps and $300. My travelmates were outside the door when I was released, and we left New Orleans ASAP, never to return again!
