It was 1980, and I was still new in town.
But she was my friend, and my bartender,
And she gave me free drinks.
"You can do this," she said,
and I shook my head and said, "No,
I don't think that I can,"
and she said, "Just put the money in your
pocket, call a cab, and go there. You get
the bags, and come back. Easy."
She was smiling after the word "easy."
And so began my career as a mule,
except for the traffic accident that
cab was involved in on the way back.
