Holidays and drinking


Most of you know I transferred to the Omaha Police Department back in August. I've had to change some things in my life because of this.

With the Holiday upon us I would like to share a personal experience with my friends about drinking and driving.

As you may know some of us have been known to have brushes with the authorities from time to time on the way home after a "social session" out with friends. Well two days ago I was out for an evening with friends and had several cocktails followed by some rather nice red wine. Feeling jolly I still had the sense to know that I may be slightly over the limit. That's when I did something that I've never done before - I took a cab home.

Sure enough on the way home there was a police road block but since it was a cab they waved it past. I arrived home safely without incident. This was a real surprise as I had never driven a cab 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.


Thanks to my co-worker Marj.

1. Now that's solution I hadn't considered before...

I have taken a bus on several occasions, but they take up too much space in the garage so I stopped.

2. At least it wasn't a Boeing 707.

There is nothing more embarrassing than waking up in the morning after a night of partying with one of those in your driveway.
