What Happened Was a Result of Whiskey, Bourbon and Beer.

Last night my wife and I planned a quiet evening at home.  I made some hot crab dip and she made cupcakes.  We were going to watch a movie and turn in early to bed. 

This did not happen.
She started drinking champagne and beer and I started drinking whiskey and bourbon.  Before long, we were both on iTunes buying songs and playing them for each other.  (Who knows how much we spent on music last night!) 
Then it began to snow.  And we always go out in to the first snow storm of the year and take pictures and get cold.  But we had never done it drunk.
The photos ended up being about 60 blurry photos of Brooklyn and us.  Somehow we wound up in another bar, drinking.
We got home and I stumbled all over everything.  I spilled a glass of water all over the table.
We went to bed and when I woke up my wife said, “I am shocked at what you did last night.”
