Bar Fight! Resolution
My wife and I went on our big night out as I had hyped in Bar Fight! Part One. So what was the resolution to the driving sitch' you ask?
When I got home from work I talked to my wife. I said that I bet when she envisioned the night she probably saw herself getting ready in front of the mirror, doing her hair and makeup, getting dressed (in a "Real Bra" she said excitedly), with a glass of wine sitting on the bathroom counter as she did so. She said yeah, that sounded awesome. So I told her that she should definitely do that and I would drive us to the bar, then she would stop consuming alcohol and sober up so she could drive us home safely at the end of the night.
And we both decided that sounded great. The end, fairy tale ending.
However, a couple things.
First of all, hire your babysitter to come early. That way you and your significant other can both get ready without one of you having to juggle the baby, or once you get ready and you're waiting on your wife the baby doesn't barf on your nice jeans.
Also, I didn't want to spend a lot of money at the bar (mission NOT accomplished but whatever, I was making it rain on those bartenders), so I smuggled a mixed drink in my Nalgene into the car so I could drink it real fast before we went in. So we find a great parking space, I start crushing my drink, and a large group of cool looking young adults exit the building we're parked in front of. It turns out we had parked in front of an AA meeting. I'm so glad I was drinking out of a water bottle and not a tall boy.
