The date was December 11, 1990 something, and Noel was a young, inexperienced coed at Washington State University.
Thursday nights were THE night to party at WSU and Noel would always start the evening off right with some pre-funking. Usually, she would have her neighbor over, enjoy a couple of smokes and a Keystone Ice, or 3, while she caught the latest episode of Friends.
On this particular evening, however, Noel decided it would be a good idea to have 3 Taco Bell chicken soft tacos, minus pico sauce, add sour cream. Followed by a fifth of peppermint schnapps and a pack of Marlboro Menthol cigarettes.
Needless to say, Noel quickly learned that this particular combination was inappropriate and she still can’t stand peppermint. Good times!
