My First and Last Drink

When did I stop drinking? I’ll tell you when.

My friend and I picked up some guys at a USO and they took us out to eat, dance and I guess we had a little too much to drink. I remembered we had a good time and really enjoyed ourselves, and next I knew this soldier dropped me off at my house and said he never had such a good time and I started wondering what happened.

I only remember eating, dining, dancing and a little hugging, and then I was home. Well that was the last time I drank alcohol.

When I went out with any other guys I always had a Shirley Temple or a Presbyterian without liquor.

Thank God I wasn’t pregnant.
