As you well know, some of us have been lucky not to have had brushes with the authorities on our way home from the various social occasions over the years.
A couple of nights ago, I was out for a few drinks with some friends and had a few too many beers and then topped it off with a margarita. Not a good idea.
Knowing full well I was over the limit, I did something I’ve never done before:
I took a taxi home.
Sure enough I passed a police road block but because it was a taxi, they waved it on through. I arrived home safely without incident, which was a real surprise.
I have never driven a taxi before and am not sure where I got it.
