Last night was my work Christmas party. I decided to have 2.5 drinks early on in the evening as it was a party and my birthday was the next day (today). For me 2.5 drinks with a huge meal is a bit of a bender and though I was not hammered, I was more relaxed than normal. I perhaps should have had that .5 drink after I finished my duty at the door prize table. I was announcing the ticket numbers for the draws.
I said “Our next prize is a grocery store gift card for $25-this will get you your Christmas Turkey. The winning number is on a spouse’s ticket-number 89. One of our spouses is going home with a turkey…” (Giggles in the background) “…oh wait that didn’t come out the way I intended.” (More giggles.)
The piece de la resistance? The winner was the boss’s wife. “Oh no she di-int”. Yup. Called the boss a turkey.
Have a great day folks! Here’s hoping I have a job on Monday (wink wink!)
PS: The writer of this blog is a firm believer of staying sharp behind the wheel. I drank strictly water the remaining hours of the evening and had plenty to eat on top of it. I was stone cold sober when I drove home….you should be too! Be safe in this season of indulging!
