Last year, my friend's husband hired a stretch limo to take us to Atlantic City to celebrate her birthday. It was such a fun night - we had cake and cocktails on the ride down, spent a few hours playing craps and walking on the boardwalk, and then had a safe ride home in the wee hours of the morning. I think we scared the limo driver with our loud and giddy fun, but it was certainly a memorable night!
That was the first time in a long time that I'd been in a limo. We had one to drive between the funeral home and cemetery when my grandma died, and we had used hired cars to take us to the airport when we traveled a few times before that, but that was all. Perhaps I should say that K's birthday was the first time I really had fun in a limo!
Of course, the reason it was such a fun night was at least in part because we knew we were safe. Fortunately, limousine laws and regulations are fairly strict to make sure that all operators are capable of providing reliable transportation to their clients, and with a professional driver, you know that you can drink a little, act silly, and still make it home in one piece. I highly recommend doing "the limo thing" when you want a night of drunken debauchery!
