Drunken Fools

The other night I went out and because my friend’s went home in different directions I decided to take the streetcar to Broadview rather than taking the bus back to the original subway station. I love taking the old streetcars. Sometimes I miss the new ones just so I can wait for one of the old ones. That night, I didn’t have to wait too long. As a matter of fact, I barely arrived at the bus stop before I heard the streetcar coming.

Anyway, I got on and was enjoying the view out the window when a group of kids got on. Now I’m going to say kids because they looked like they range in age from about 16 to 18.  And they were CRAZY loud. I put in my music because I’d rather listen to Chris Young than a bunch of teenagers swear after every word.

Right as the streetcar made it almost to Yonge and Dundas, this guy lurched from his seat and doubled over at the steps. At first I thought he was speaking to the driver but then noticed he was bent over at the waist and people were starting to get up and moving back.  That was when I noticed he was throwing up and the smell of alcohol just filled the streetcar. The driver stopped, put the streetcar out of service so we had to get off. I wasn’t sure where we were for a second, but eventually realized I was just steps away from Yonge and Dundas so I found my way to the subway and got on the train there.

People listen – If you know you cannot hold your liquor, lay off the booze. It makes no sense inconveniencing a streetcar full of people because you chose to have that fourth or fifth beer.  And besides that, it makes you look like a drunken fool in front of a bunch of strangers.

Seriously, alcohol doesn’t mean fun. It means hangover and embarrassment and aggravation.

They call me Kat, or Kitty Kat. I am a 34 year old Legal Admin Assistant by day, sensual, interracial romance author by night writing under Kadian Tracey and Kendra Mei Chailyn. I'm the best selling author of Broken Wings, Made to Bend Not Break, Cowboy Lullaby, A Lover’s Wish, Kiss It Better, GSG 9: CIRO: Miracle and the Beast (in the Susan Stoker Kindle World), SURRENDER: Prey and The Shadowcat Series. My life is pretty much spent tapping away at keyboards either at my day job or my evening job (writing). What will this blog be about? Well, aside from my writing, someone told me recently that there is plenty of fun to be had in Toronto at 33 years old and single! So, I’ve decided to have a little fun! I am hoping this fun will parley into more stories, novels and an evolution in my writing as well as a deeper understanding of myself. This blog is to talk about my day, things I see, people I interact with, music, art, what's happening in the world and events I attend! Here’s hoping I can make you smile and grow in the process!
