In addition, once again, I find myself realizing that I can temporarily eliminate 24 years of shyness with a few sips of port. Unfortunately, I find my body adapting to the effects of white wine, so I no longer get intoxicated that way. For a few hours, I got to be talkative and flirtatious.
My only other regret was the aftermath. I had the opportunity of escorting two fine ladies to their home. I should have ignored details like a 50 lb bag I was carrying or the fact that it was in the direction completely opposite that of my home. Silly me, I chose the logical approach and headed home. I have to stop doing that.
