Last night, we went on a sunset dinner cruise as part of the final day of a conference that spouse and his work are participating in/hosting. The other delegates hail from all over the globe and had a chance to visit Montreal during the 4 day conference. Unfortunately for them, it has pretty much done nothing but rain around here.
So what do you do on a sunset dinner cruise when it's pouring down rain? You drink. In fact, you drink copiously since you are trapped in a banquet room with fogged up windows for four long hours. (The following morning one reviews the thinking that led to that decision.) Once the cruise was over, spouse and I took a long walk in the rain down to the village.
Since I'm rarely out after midnight, I suggested we go for a "last one" before taking a cab home. I didn't want to pay a cover charge, but since it was Saturday night, I was probably dreaming. (Why do I have to pay for the right to purchase beverages? I hate this.) Anyway, we went to the downstairs of Parking and were told that if we ventured upstairs, it would cost $4.25. We had a couple of beers (wrong, wrong I'm sure of that now) and then came home. I don't really remember what happened then. I suppose we went to bed.
Hangovers and writing are a poor mix at best.
