24 Years Ago Today

Something happened that changed my life

I was 21 and after work, I had gone out with some friends. A girlfriend of mine was turning 21, and we wanted to celebrate with drinks. I remember what I was wearing and the bars we stopped at. This night wasn’t much different than any other, besides the fact that on my way home I got pulled over and was made to do a field sobriety test.
