With Christmas upon us, I would like to relay a story a friend shared with me.
Here is his tale...

"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, 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."

Merry Christmas to all, and to all, a good night.
