TOO MUCH DUVAL STREET

So, we decided to ride our bikes to CVS Pharmacy to buy some cold medicine for Bill and a few other things...........5 hours and about a dozen bars on Duval Street later we went to CVS Pharmacy. We all know that drinking and driving is not a good thing, but as we discovered, being intoxicated and riding bikes and attempting to get off a dinghy onto a boat is also a very dangerous thing. We crashed our bikes at least 3 times each from Duval Street to the dinghy dock. Bill scraped his arm pretty badly just as we entered the parking lot for the dinghy dock. A couple of good citizens stopped and asked us if we were alright and my reply was "yes, thanks, just too much Duval Street". We get into the dinghy and we get to the boat, I get off okay then I get in the cockpit and hear a big splash. My first thought was, oh my God Bill is in the water, how am I going to get him out. I look and sure enough Bill is in the water swimming towards the dinghy. It did answer a question that we previously had of whether or not we could get out of the water into the dinghy without a ladder. Bill made it back into the dinghy and onto the boat but his cell phone did not. Don't try calling him any time soon.
I was trying to remember why my arm hurt then remembered a sign post that jumped out at me and hit my arm. I also vaguely remember telling some guy he had beatiful eyes - I think his male partner was okay with that.
Looks like a day of rest for us today.
