To all my DiveBuddy friends,

Because I want to wish you all a happy and most importantly safe Holiday
Season, I would like to share a personal experience with you about
drinking and driving. Some of you probably have had brushes with the
authorities on your way home from the occasional social event ,
especially during the holidays. A couple of nights ago I was out for an
evening with friends, and had a couple of cocktails and some really
fine red wine. Knowing full well I may have been slightly over the
legal blood alcohol limit, I did something I’ve never done before. I
took a cab home, and wouldn’t you know it on the way home I passed a
police DUI road block but, since it was a cab, they waved it through. I
arrived home safely without incident, which was a real surprise because
I have never driven a cab before and am not sure where I got it or what
to do with it now that it’s in my garage.

Have a safe Holiday.

Thank you for sharing this with us. Not only did you luck out by missing the DUI roadblock, but you also could have saved the lives of some family driving back late from Grandma’s house. Great decision man!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Vacation Time, or whatever else you all celebrate this time of long as you believe in the one true higher power...the ocean.

Now if it was a Checker or London it might be worth something one day :) Have a safe Christmas!

I just re-read the last sentence and now it’s funny :). Sorry for being all serious with my earlier reply. "I took a cab home." ...I see what you did there :)
