I remember when...OT and mildly risque.

I went out to supper tonight with a friend and drank 4 glasses of water along with my food. Came home and went over to sit on Skipper's deck with he and his Missus and drank an additional 24 oz of water. You can well imagine what I'll be doing all night. Geez-I remember when having a wet dream meant something different!

I also remember when an All-nighter meant something other than what you dscribe.

What you should have done was take Trainer set up with a bike to the restaurant. Doesn't matter how much i drink on a ride- I do not have the midnight walk syndrome.

Reminds me of the country and western lyrics

I'm not as good as I once was, but I am as good once as I ever was!
