You are obviously more used to guiding drunks that I am - I managed a measly 11 meters ...... but I have had a cocoa myself .....

Oh, and Happy Birthday Sam - how's the liver?

The Rev. said...

As tempted as I was to give it a second shot in hopes for a better score, I hit 47 meters on my first try. Damn that guy's tipsy!

I love the bit about the taxi driver! I may or may not have had an intoxicated run-in with a taxi pilot in New Orleans a few years back...

The Rev. said...
