I knew this was the basis of your objection, but you're overthinking it. I stand by my suggestion of a smaller dose of whatever it is you're smoking.
Yes, yes, I could do that. Or you could drink the Kool-Aid, swing by Golden Gate Park, and come mix metaphors with us.
EDIT: I don't recall SF all that well. My last visit was in 2007. Is Golden Gate Park where smelly hippie types walk around muttering "nuggets" under their breath when a clean cut looking fellow like myself walks past?
