Drinking Responsibly

When I was in law school, we had horrible exams at the end of each semester.  How you performed on these exams made up your entire grade.  And your grades decided whether or not you would get a summer internship at a law firm.  And whether or not you got a summer internship at a law firm would decide whether or not you'd get a decent job offer after graduation.

So basically, if you did crappy on your exams, you could kiss a successful legal career goodbye.

No pressure, right?

So exam time was always a crazy two week period of my life.  Basically I would check out, immerse myself in my books, eat food that Scott brought to me, and cry.  Lots.

Then, at the end of exams, I would go out to celebrate with my law school classmates.  Which usually involved a lot of drinking.  (Told you I loved those lemon drops.)

Anyways, after one particularly gruelling exam period, I went out and celebrated a little too much.  I know this because when I got home, I rolled into bed with Scott (who was fast asleep) and then kept rolling right out onto the floor.  I landed underneath my clothes drying rack.

Scott woke up who knows how much later to the sound of me saying "Where am I?" 

Yes.  I got lost underneath my clothes.

Scott rescued me, thank God.  But what if he hadn't been there?  I might never have found my way out.

So people, the next time you think about overindulging in some bubbly, please remember what happened to me and act a little more responsibly, okay?  Like maybe put some pillows down around the bed.  And some snacks.  And a GPS device.

You can never be too safe.

Hehe, loving your diagram!!! Oh the drunken stories from university...for some reason I can't remember many of them!

Kmama said...

LOL! So did you roll right over the top of Scott on your way to the floor?? I'm so cracking up at the visual.

LisaDay said...

Too funny. It is a great visual. And Kmama asks a good question.


Lula Lola said...

Funny! I'll certainly start bringing my gps to bed after a night out! Good advice!

At least you had hung your clothes up on the rack - that was very responsible of you! ;)

I just have to let you know that I had read my DH your post about Lemon Drop last week. My daughter chose to rent a Strawberry Shortcake DVD from the library this week and as she was watching it yesterday, DH said "Is SS hanging out with her good friend Lemon Drop?" ;-)

Belle n' Kent said...

You're such a nut. :) I wanna know what made you think of that all of a sudden?!

Ruth Anne said...

Oh, Megan you are simply HILARIOUS!!!!

I hope you're enjoying your spa day!!

Can I use any more exclamation points?!?!?!?!?!?!

Maybe if I add in some emoticons it'll accurately depict the depths of my emotions.

:-D =) :) :-) =0) :0)


Ah, I feel so much better!

Megan said...

Kmama and LisaDay: I think I must have rolled in at an angle. Although to be honest, I'm not totally confident that I actually ever made it in the bed.

Belle: I have no idea why I thought of it. The brain leads me on strange journeys some days. :-)

Liz said...

Little did you know that what happened back then, would make for kick ass blog fodder later on!
