"One day, after dropping acid (the one and only time I've tried acid in my life), some sort of identity crisis overtook me. Who am I? And who are my friends? Do I have allies or are they all frenemies? Back then, there was no Internet, and I didn't know or use the word "frenemy", but I think if that word had already been coined and popularized in Argentina, I wouldn't't have had the meltdown I did, for I would have been able to work out those mixed emotions I felt towards certain people."
