Thinking Outside The Six Pack

My previous post included my persuasive arguments for Teen Son on driving and drinking. Seems now I need to talk to Teen Daughter.

I had a few drinks at a party the other night and asked a friend to take me home. Daughter wanted to know why I didn't drive myself home.

"Because I don't drink and drive," I told her.
"Mom," she said, put off. "You don't have to do that. You just put down the drink and then keep both hands on the steering wheel."

Why didn't I think of that?

Oh, your daughter is a smart one. I hope you have sturdy cupholders, tho. NOTHING gets the smell of beer out of upholstery (so I've heard).
