Making good decisions


We all like to think we make good decisions, but let’s face it–you have a few drinks and logic is thrown out the window.

I went to the Wine and Food show in London with some girlfriends last weekend. The night began with me catching up with friends and ended with me waking up in last nights outfit, with a dead cell phone and stranded 20 minutes away from my car. Here’s how I got from point A to point B.

After spending a few hours wondering the show taking sips here and there and bumping into people, two of my friends went home because they needed to work the next morning. I had run into my brother and his girlfriend and opted to continue the party at their place with my other girlfriend. After more drinks at my brothers, the drunken midnight cravings kicked in. We threw a box of perogies on–oh, and a package of bacon. I ended up ruining the snack for the vegetarians by mistakenly dousing the ‘veggie perogies’ (that had been set aside) in bacon grease. My bad.

After shovelling as many perogies and slices of bacon as I could into my mouth–I crashed hard on the futon.

I woke up with a sore back. I was still wearing the tights and high waisted skirt–complete with belt. My phone was dead.

When my brother finally woke up I asked: “Are you bringing me to my car, or did Robyn say she could pick me up?”

Well his car was parked about 30 minutes away…they had left it at the Wine and Food Show. After snagging a charger from my brother I texted Robyn: “Could you come pick me up?”

Well she could…but my car was parked behind their garage. Did I leave my keys so they could move it? NOPE. I ended up having to walk about 30 minutes in -5 degree weather in a skirt, leather jacket, and high heels…all because of one bad decision. WHY did I not just cab home with Robyn when she left my brothers?

I would have:

a) had a bed to sleep in

b) had PJs to sleep in

c) had my phone charger

d) had my car

e) not frozen my butt off walking to my brothers car

f) would have gotten home about 3 hours earlier.

Again, clearly I make good decisions.
