      Yikes. Looks like someone spiked my juice!

      It was nice not to feel like an outcast or get funny looks for vaping. I had fun and I'm looking forward to the next one.

        Believe it or not, the pizza flavoring isn't horrible... initially. I made a 5% sample with it and gave it the regular heat n shake treatment, then let it sit in a drawer for a week. Then I pulled it out and dripped it on a reasonably clean atty.

        The first hit - odd, but pleasant in a way. LOTS of oregano. Some garlic. Something kinda sorta cheesy. The second hit just seemed to double down the first one, the oregano got far too strong and an acidic tomato flavor began to show itself. I set my rig down for a minute to try and recover from the oregano overdose, and then took one more toot. It just tasted... filthy. No more of that.

        I learned a day or two later that the cheese component in the flavoring was suspect for being a diacetyl producer, so I abandoned the stuff. Was gonna just throw it away but Ketchup said he wanted it so I brought it to the meet. He didn't show, so it got tossed into the raffle as a booby prize.

        It won't kill you if you vape the stuff, because it's just too foul in the long run to ingest enough to be dangerous.

        p.s. Great meet as always! Thanks for putting it all together!
