I remember the first time I got drunk. I was working doing computers at a car dealership. After work, you all took me across the street to the bar you'd hit after work most days. I hadn't learned to drink much. I lost track of how many screwdrivers I had. Eventually, it was time to go, so I went out and got into the car. From E14th to 98th next to the freeway. I hadn't been driving all that long, but I knew that the amount of concentration it was taking to drive sanely, even in these mostly deserted streets at that hour, was not sustainable. Right before the freeway, I pulled into a convenience store parking lot to use a payphone, and call my dad to come pick me up. He brought my brother Jeff to help ferry both cars home. They both told me they were glad I'd called. There have been a few times I've had to drive when I shouldn't have done so. Alcohol is hands down the worst. I never drove on Alcohol again.

This is a memory I'm proud of.
