Toasting The Holiday? Read This First….

celebrationI caught this on the neighborhood yahoo group this morning. I think it’s a “fable,” but just in case, I’ll skip attribution to the author just this once. 😉

With the Christmas holidays upon us, I would like to share a personal experience with my friends about drinking and driving. Some of you may have friends who have had brushes with the authorities on the way home after a “social time” out with friends.

Well, two days ago I was out for dinner with some friends and had a couple cocktails … followed by some rather nice red wine. Feeling jolly, but still having the sense to know I might be “slightly” over the limit, I did something I’ve never done before — I took a cab home (Yep! Took a cab home).

Sure enough, on the way home there was a police roadblock, but since it was a cab, they waved it past. I arrived home safely without incident.

The real surprise is that I’d never driven a cab before. I don’t know where I got it and now it’s in my garage. I’m not sure what to do with it and would appreciate your comments/suggestions.

Be safe out there this holiday season, my neighbors! A good friend of my husband’s was crossing a street this week and was hit by a car. Don’t be that driver!
