Last hitch when I was in the Houston airport, I was talking to a fellow crew member and he was telling me that when his wife picks him up at the airport, she has a cooler in the car with chilled cokes and a flask of Crown Royal.
Ok, she's well intentioned, but.......
For a split second while he was telling me this story, I thought to myself, it would be nice if my wife picked me up with a chilled bottle of chardonay. Lucky for me, I'm not as dumb as I look, because I never did place that order.
Good thing, because last hitch as my wife was driving me home from the airport at midnight, we were stopped at a sobriety check point and proudly stated to the officers, "Hell no we haven't been drinking!" As we pulled away from the check point I shared the story with my wife of the guy who drinks Crown on the way home from his airport.
Another hitch goes by, and last night, as my wife was driving me home from the airport again at 1 am, we got pulled over by the State Police, AGAIN, where we stated with some pride, "Hell no we haven't been drinking."
Kids, let this be a lesson to you.
It's a good thing I'm not as dumb as I look.
Today, my first morning home....it doesn't get any better than this.
This view is much better than the view from a drunk tank!
