Have a look at the photo I’ve posted here this morning. Okay, the young man’s quite sexy, but he’s clearly not happy. What do you suppose is wrong? Are his hands cuffed? Is he sitting at the police station, waiting to get booked because he drove while drunk?
That’s what you’ll be doing if you’re pulled over for a DUI tonight or in the wee hours of tomorrow. So … if you’re going to be drinking much tonight, at a bar or a party, make sure you have a Designated Driver or you take a taxi to and from the festivities. I know, it’s expensive hiring a cab, but a DUI arrest will cost you twenty times more, at least.
Okay, lecture over.
I’m staying on the island tonight, attending a couple of parties my neighbors are throwing. Plenty to eat and drink, and at midnight we’ll have a major fireworks display. All sorts of fireworks will be launched over the Intracoastal Waterway. Ka-BOOM! It’s overcast today, but the temperature’s around 75, so it should be nice tonight.
I want to wish everyone a safe and happy New Year’s Eve. If you do venture out on the road tonight, drive carefully please.
