F!@k it Dude. Let's go bowlin'.

I got invited out to go bowling this evening after work, and I'm just now arriving at the old homestead feeling little worse for wear. I outaged the nearest comepetitor by at least eleven years, but I still managed to win the most games with the highest average. The "kids" got a little um, tipsy before heading on out to the lanes, and I was merely feeling a little good. Pretty much the same amount of beer consumed in the same amount of time. There's something to be said for practice.

Nonetheless, I had a great time, and so did everyone else. There was a couple of gentlemen there that wound up getting a little too deep into their cups, but luckily for everyone involved, they all had rides with folks who had not been imbibing to the Nth degree.

I know that I'm too old to be running around with these children, but I'm still glad that I can. (And I can drive my Damn-Self home when the party is over.)

FYI... only drinking 2 BEERS in less than an hour will make you legally intoxicated and at risk of getting a very expensive DUI... even if you are a 220# man. Be careful out there. NEVER take a breath test... let them suspend your license for 90 days... it only cost about $750 and some personal time to get a work-permit license that allows you to drive up 12 hours a day for work related activities. After the period expires, you get your license back and have no DUI on your record.

Careful, Madfish. 37 states have laws that have MORE punishment should you refuse a BAC test:

Thanks Willie, I appreciate the insight, and I'll definately take that advice.

Mike, I checked out the site you linked to, and according to it, Tennessee is not one of the states that has a higher penalty for refusal, so I'm okay there. Thanks for the info anyhow.

As a disclaimer...90 to 95% of the drinking I do happens right here in front of this keyboard. I'm not afraid to call a cab (or a friend) for a ride if I feel like I'm too far gone to get home in one peice. I haven't been "out of control" from drinking since I turned 21 (12 years ago), and I had people driving me around at that time.
