>It was my birthday.

>After hockey game, went to settle up (2 Sam Winter), bartenders knew it was my birthday, & said I had no tab tonight.
>My date canceled late afternoon (her oldest was sick). I am completely understanding - kids come first. But could not arrange a backup date (& understandably so, 11th hour).
>Kaleta is a marked man. For what???? He's been tame this year, and opponents are trying to explode him.
Since no date, went to company party instead (annual year-end celebration - we do it after new years the past few years, instead of Christmastime. Works out better for everyone). Boring, as usual. Only went for the free food (I ate a lot), as it was only 10 min from my house. Left early, as I knew I would.
Saw last ~37 minutes of of BUF-STL. More joy.
After game, stopped at bar around corner from my house. Free band playing; good covers, good sound, nice crowd. I chill & nurse a Miller lite. 3 divorcees come in (took a cab there) but are happily and playfully on their last stop on a girls night out. I chat up the ladies. Just like Goldilocks, #1 is too wild, #3 is too tame, and #2 is just right. I talk some with #1, mostly with #2 (turns out we have a couple mutual friends and interests). Later, #2 is tired, so she wants everyone to leave. I'm fine to drive, (<<1 beer per hour); they shouldn't drive even if they had a car there, and a taxi would take a while to get there. So I offer to take them home (they hubbed from one house 10-15 minutes away). Ironically, I just had my car detailed, for the first time ever (12 year old car) less than 2 weeks ago. Aside from a couple deep paint scratches, the car is new-car clean and spotless - carpets, interior, etc. So we go. Divorcee #3, the passive one, who appeared least drunk of all of them - 100% sober in fact - has me pull over nearly every 100 yards on the ride home as she opens the door and vomits. Most of it stays outside the car. Most of it. Not all. Between the ride home for them, and a little bit of aftercare needed for #3, I get home 1.5 hours later. I'm not upset, as I chose to be a good samaritan. But I'm thinking I better get a date with #2 and/or #1 out of this episode. (#3 isn't my type, and it's nothing to do with the car ride.)
