Drinking Over Christmas.
After surviving the holiday season, I would like to share a personal and life changing experience with my family and friends – involving drinking and driving.
As you know, some of us have had brushes with the authorities from time to time on the way home after a “social session” with friends.
One of these social sessions led me to be in town for an evening with friends and we had more than a few beers followed by some bottles of excellent wine.
Although feeling OK, we still had the good sense to know that we were probably slightly over the limit.
That’s when we did something that we normally would not do – we actually took a taxi.
Sure enough, on the way home there was a police roadblock, but since we were in a cab, they waved us past and we arrived home safely without incident.
This was a real surprise to me, as I had never driven a cab before.
We don’t know where we got the taxi, and now that it’s parked in my garage, we don’t know what to do with it.
So, if you want to borrow it, let me know.
