info The ride home

I would like to share a personal experience with my friends about drinking and driving. This might save you the cost and embarrassment of being arrested for DUI.
As you know, people have been known to have unexpected brushes with the authorities from time to time, often on the way home after a "social session" with family or friends. Well, this year, it happened to me.
I was out for the evening to a party and had more than several margaritas coupled with a bottle of rather nice red wine. It was held at a great Mexican restaurant.
Although relaxed, I still had the common sense to know I was slightly over the limit. That's when I did something I've never done before...I took a taxi home. On the way home there was a police roadblock, but since it was a taxi they waved it past and I arrived home safely without incident. These roadblocks can be anywhere and I realized how lucky I was to have chosen to take a taxi.
The real surprise to me was 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.
If you want to borrow it, give me a call.

Back in the 80's when it was less regulated to have a "few" I was able to nurse a buzz, and get my 76 Camero back home. 18 was the legal age, and it was a lot easier to have fun. I later "learned" that it wasn't wise to drink and drive, back then there was less population round these parts, quite nice if I say so for myself. But now, I know "better". Gas and alcohol truly don't mix! Yea, verily......
