Holiday Cautionary Tale

With the holidays upon us, I would like to share a personal experience
with my friends about drinking and driving. This is a first for me, as I
normally don't preach to others. 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, I was out for an evening with friends and had several cocktails followed by some rather 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 and 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 ?????......

Funny...I also posted this on Facebook and it took several of my family and friends a bit before they too realized it was only a "tale"...they were asking me when this happened and what I finally did with the taxi...
