Smart Drunk Guy!!

Last night, the doorbell rang at 3 am. I ran to the door and discovered a slightly drunk guy asking me for a push. I told him to wait until I got dressed. Then, he was gone. I yelled, “Where are you?” He said, “Over here, on the swing.”

Drunk people do some very strange things. Alcohol seems to remove the filter in the brain that says, “That’s not a good idea.” They think they’re invincible. They’ll pick fights with guys who will obviously knock them silly, among other things.

I have two stories about drunk people that I think you’ll enjoy. The first one happened as I was returning from a show. It was very late and I was just about to turn into our condo complex. I was still married, but we were just starting the divorce process.

Suddenly, a drunk young lady got into my truck and said, “Get me out of here! My boyfriend is trying to kill me!” So, I took off, thinking I could drop her at a relative’s house. She had none. She started coming on to me, but I wanted no part of it. I needed to get her some help.

Then it hit me. My father-in-law was the greatest guy in the world. He would know what to do. I arrived there at 2 am, knocking on the door. Mind you, they knew about the troubles their daughter and I were having. Dad opened the door and saw me with my arm around this drunk girl, holding her up.

At first, he just stared at me like I was out of my mind. I finally convinced him that there was a good explanation. Mom started a pot of coffee while I told my story. They called the minister of their church, who came right over. They began putting together a plan to help the woman and I went home. I’ll never forget the look on his face when he first opened the door.

I’ll write about the other story tomorrow. See you then!
