She rarely paid her bar tabs, and relied on an endless series of completely false sob stories to keep the local bartenders from banning her from their establishments. One night, at one of her favorite haunts, a drinking buddy of hers offered her some LSD. She never remembered exactly what happened that night, but nine months later, my old friend the sailor was born.
