Attention MADD

Last night we were drinking at the Drunken Elf (real name: Happy Gnome) and decided we'd head back to the West Side to Stella's (not the greatest decision but that's a whole 'nother story). I was asked if I could drive us back, and when giving a resounding "NO", got laughed at. Not because I failed to want to drive, but because most people asked if they can drive, slur "Oh yeah, I'm ottally fine".

Alicia is then asked if she can drive, and, again, a solid "NO" is the answer, as if this is the silliest question eva. We giggled, then decided MADD should spin this situation into a anti-drinking and driving ad campaign, based on the idea that it's cool to admit that after 5 beers you shouldn't drive.

PS Missy's answer, "Oh yeah, I'm good to go" helped get us back to Mpls, and proved she was from WI where no one ever says "No" when handed car keys.

UPDATE: Around 11am we got rolling outta Uptown, picked up Alicia, and headed to pick up her car. Except we drove to freaking St. Paul to pick up her car, not realizing our mistake till we pulled into the Happy Gnome. Her car was parked on 31st and Hennepin, less than a dozen blocks from her house. We obviously all had the dumbs.

We are model citizens (snicker)

Stella's did both a)suck ass and even worse b)smell like ass

I'm just glad I paid in cash so I won't be charged 74 times for my Heineken Lights
