After the first round of whiskey, Dan said, "Those shots were fitting. Glad we aren't just sticking to beers."

The third round came and some of us smiled. Some of us smiled as we toasted. "To not blowing up in a car crash," someone said, I think.
Dan threw up on the bar after the fourth round of whiskey. Some ended up on his clothes. On his way to the bathroom, he tripped over his own feet and fell into the door before he could clean himself up. We all laughed and looked down in our wallets for jukebox money.
