With Christmas upon us, I would like to relay a story a friend shared with me. Here is his tale...
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, two days ago, 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 vodka
shots. 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. Sure
enough, on the way there was a police roadblock, but since it was a
taxi they waved it by and I arrived home safely without incident. This
was a real surprise to me; 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."
