I've been drinking and I wanted to get off the road quickly. I am driving my friend to the hospital. He has alcohol poisoning. (The driver was also found to be intoxicated.) (After crashing) I put high test gas in my car and it caused me to lose control. (He was also found to be intoxicated.) I'm trying to catch that UFO. Will you try to catch it for me? I get 10 extra miles per hour in the fast lane. I'm wearing shoes that are really heavy and they make the gas petal go down more. My doctor gave me the wrong medication. I'm headed to a divorce proceeding and if you met her, sir, you would understand why I'm in a hurry.I just got my license back after having it suspended and I'm not used to driving.
