Remember when you were in high school, underage, with no one old enough around to buy you beer? Perhaps you found a different solution to your boring Friday nights. Perhaps you did whip-its with your friends. Or maybe you sat by and watched your friends do whip-its and wondered what the thrill was. I know I did. The first time I saw someone do a whip-it was on a spring break at Panama City Beach. The guy told me that they give a great high that lasts about 5 seconds. Then you have to do one again to feel high. Or you may get a headache.
Five seconds? The amount of time it takes to set it all up takes longer. I decided they weren’t my thing.
Evidently, Demi Moore had a different opinion.
Monday night, Demi Moore inhaled a dangerous amount of nitrous oxide while doing whip-its. One of her friends called 911 after Demi lapsed into semi-consciousness. She seemed to have had symptoms of a seizure.
WTF, Demi? You’re rich enough to do any drug you want and you pick whip-its?
Of course, Demi’s publicist is saying:
Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health. She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends.”
Exhaustion. Uh huh.
