^ well, I did that for starters^

Went to a very nice, elegant dinner at my favorite restaurant wearing a beautiful little lace and satin number I'd found the day before for $3.99 from a "going-out-of-business" sale. Got a little drunk on basil martinis which then progressed almost disastrously to Spanish coffees, but they were extremely necessary for obtaining a fire fix. Then a member of the party who is always trying to get me into trouble took us to "The Florida Club" (marquee outside - and I kid you not - "Sin sin sin all the time - Go Team Evil!") which seemed fun even if we were over-dressed, with great music, but it was immediately abandoned for being "too smoky" by more delicate members of the party. We then opted for a cheerful little pub across the street that used to be a funeral home and played a very loud game of speed Scrabble. I got into a mock-serious argument with same trouble-making friend when challenged on the spelling of "grimy" and was confidently informed by two different waitresses and a bartender that it was actually spelled "grimey." I never argue with anyone who might possibly spit in my drink.

The evening ended the old-fashioned way - with milk and ibuprofen.
This guaranteed no hangover for church the next morning.
Oh, let me tell you, it was action-packed.
1. While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.
2. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your right hand.
3. Your foot will change direction.
