Being Maximum

Once you feel it the first time, you crave it. When you’re Maximum, all your thoughts come to you quicker and with more clarity. Your body moves faster. Small details jump out at you and you laugh more frequently and more fully. When you’re Maximum, you see all the things you never saw before that are holding you back from staying Maximum or even raising the level of Maximum that you can be, and you want to kill those things. Things you never thought you’d want to skip now you boldly turn away from. Bringing you down, man. Walking into the office less than Maximum is a punishment now, rather than a badge of partying honor. In the past, Maximum lived somewhere else and occasionally you’d visit if there happened to be a day or two of alone time in between wild weekends. Now you’re not only visiting, you’ve become it; you’re not at maximum, you are Maximum.
