      Now this drink comes with a funny story. I was hanging out with this guy and he tried to get me drunk so we’d have sex. What he didn’t know was it takes a lot for that to happen and it ain’t that easy. When he tried to make his move he didn’t expect me to knee him in the sack and neither did I, but, my reflexes kicked in! lol. He was in pain and I was pissed. We got in his car and I had to drive myself home. As soon as I pulled up to my Apt I jumped out and left the door, hoping to never see him again… This happened yesterday. LOL ENJOY!
