Drinking & Driving

With the holidays upon us I would like to share a personal experience with you about drinking and driving after a "social session" with friends.

Well, this past Weekend, I was out on a pre-Christmas/New Year's evening with friends. I had a few cocktails, followed by a handful of glasses of vintage red wine.

Despite the jolliness, I still had the sense to know that I was over the limit. That's when I decided to do what I have never done before: I took a cab home.

Sure enough, there was a police road block on the highway but, since it was a cab, they waved it past. I arrived home safely without incident. This was both a great relief and surprise because I had never driven a cab before. I don't even know where I got it from and, now that it is in my garage, I don't know what to do with it.
