true again. if I had no life, I would be a much better motorcycle racer!
and you're advising someone to abstain from alcohol??
No, I was saying I don't abstain, but I do actually try to keep it to a minimum the night before, unlike the old days. Not much hydration in beer
And you forgot to tell them about the puking. I was bummed I didn't have my camera handy for that.
