Drinking and Driving: St. Patrick's Edition

As you know it was St. Patrick's Day earlier this week, and I would like to share a personal experience with my friends about drinking and driving.

As you know, some of us have been known to have brushes with the authorities from time to time, often on the way home after a "social session" with family or friends.

Well, St. Patrick's Day was a few days ago, and this happened to me. I was out for an evening with friends and had more than several beers followed by a couple of bottles of rather nice red wine, and then a few vodka shots. Although relaxed, I still had the common sense to know I was ...well... slightly over the limit.

That's when I did something I've never done before: I took a taxi home. Sure enough on the way there was a police roadblock, but since it was a taxi they waved it past and I arrived home safely without incident.

This was a real surprise to me, because I had never driven a taxi before. I don't know where I got it, and now that it's in my garage I don't know what to do with it.

So, anyway, if you want to borrow it for a night on the town, give me a call.
