It's a Girl Thing..... Part 2

So, I remembered one time when I did realize that I had girl power.

I was out with KOM and probably half a dozen other people getting drunk at the Lamplighter bar in downtown Napa. I had passed my limit - and was weaving and falling over. KOM called a cab to take us back to his place. We were waiting outside, and the cab was just pulling up when my stomach decides it's had enough fun for one night. I run over to the sidewalk (I think?!) and start heaving. The cab driver just waited patiently until I was done, and KOM escorted me into the vehicle. I proceeded to spend the next ten minutes with my head hanging out the open window like a dog - my tongue was probably hanging out too.

Sometime before this incident, the exact same thing happened to our friend Aaron. He is puking as the cab drives up. When he heads to the car, the cabbie says something like "No way in hell are you getting in my cab!" and takes off!

I guess I had girl power and didn't even know it! Of course, maybe our cab driver was a little bit more compassionate.

  • Or it could have been that I told him to start the meter while we waited for you to finish. :)

  • Our cab drivers won't pick you up if you are that plastered, it's in the "rules"

    If you do, however puke in their cars, there's a $140 fee to clean it. Kind of an incentive not to puke, huh?

  • awe.

    and ewww.

    I wouldn't have let you in--girls just don't have that power over me.

    But then, I am a girl.

  • and squishi--isn't that unsafe? If you can't get a cab--aren't you going to drive yourself, drunk?

  • Yep yep... we get away with murder all the time!

    I had the most girl power when I was pregnant. The world became a kinder, gentler place. It would have been perfect except for 9 months of morning sickness.

  • Thing is lots of women use the woman powers without even knowing it. It is just that strong of a power over most men.

  • Ya see, to hell with that afirmative action crap. Girls already have all sorts of power that guys dont have and cant even immagine.
