last night, although my friend joe was cajoling me, telling me to have one drink, i refused the entire night, drinking only diet coke.
on the way home, on the 202, 3 cars in front of me went from going 65 to 0 in .2 seconds, practically. i slammed on my brakes and skidded, stopping mere inches from the bumper in front of me.
had i been drinking at ALL, i KNOW that there was NO way i could have made that stop in time, and i would have been responsible for a 4 car pile up. not just responsible for a 4 car pile up, but responsible for a 4 car pile up while UNDER THE INFLUENCE, AND RIGHT IN FRONT OF A COP CAR.
folks, don't drink and drive. if i wasn't a believer now, i DEFINITELY am now. i've been planning on quitting drinking, and it truly hasnt' been difficult yet. just, um, if you DO drink, do it responsibly.
