  •  Not very funny, but when I was 20 or so (7+ / 0-)

    I went with a bunch of friends down to Summerfest on the Milwaukee lakefront (back when it was still dirt and tents) and got so wasted I didn't even remember driving home.

    There's a fourteen year old boy upstairs right now who wouldn't be on this earth if the other drivers that night hadn't been much, much better than I.

      Waking up was seriously scary.

      so what do you mean? you know I can't let that go?

      Was he conceived that night? And other drivers got you home safely to do that.

      Sorry just had to ask. You don't have to answer. I'm glad it worked out, in any case.

      Old Mamasan would certainly be glad to know that Ronnie's gotten past it. I'll tell her the next time I see her. Stephen King, Hearts in Atlantis

        My friends in the car told me later that my car was all over the road, crossing the center line several times on the four or five mile drive home along the lakefront.

        The truth is it happened late enough that there weren't too many other folks out and about.  Whoever was there, though, did a good job in staying away from a punk kid with twelve too many beers in him driving his mom's car.

        While I still can't remember the night in question, the terror I experienced when I realized the next day what I had done was permanently engraved in my consciousness.
