Guy Gets Super High, Calls 911 Twice to Report His Dreams
Mark Welch, from Volusia County, was reportedly tripping balls so hard from smoking synthetic weed on Sunday that he started to believe that whatever happened in his dreams was happening in real life.
"Something happened in my dream and it's actually happening," Welch told the dispatcher. "Everything that happened today is actually in my dream and I want to prove it to everybody."
You ever see Inception? That shit is totally happening to me!
"What did you dream about that's happening?" the dispatcher asked.
You have to love this dispatcher. Most 911 operators are real dickish and angry and berate a caller like this before hanging up. But this person wanted to get to the bottom of the dreams. It's almost like they were egging Welch on, like your old college roommate used to do to you when you tripped out on 'shrooms.
"It's all on paper," Welch said. "I wrote it down."
No doubt he probably thought he wrote down some David Foster Wallace-like earth-shattering stuff. But it was probably just a drawing of food.
Police also say that Welch's parents hid his phone to keep him from calling again.
