Something I’ve never done before…

I’ve just had to give a sample of breath to a Police officer and I’ve never had to do that before.

Just after leaving a friends house at around 1am I was pulled over by a Police car.  This wasn’t too much of a shock as they were in front of me at first, but then went around a roundabout waving me on then followed for a little bit before switching on all the pretty lights on their roof.

It turns out I had a broken headlight :-(

Anyway, they asked me where I lived, what I did and where I had been, which was fine because I knew all the answers to those questions.  Then they asked if I had had anything to drink.  My reply of “no, oh wait yes, no – yes” didn’t inspire me with confidence, let alone them.  Then I said “Yes I had a bottle of beer – with the Pizza – so about five hours ago”

I’ve always wondered what it was like to blow into that little device, is there any resistance / pressure, can you make it whistle if you blow hard enough, those kind of things.  At no point was I in the slightest concerned that I was anywhere near the limit – which obviously I wasn’t and they sent me on my way asking me to get my light fixed as soon as possible.

I should have asked what the reading was out of interest, but didn’t think about that at the time.

I wonder if I’ll do anything else today that I’ve never done before?

    Presumably you didn’t include “Esacped from Atlantis” in your I’ve never…” since got beat at a board game is something you’ve done many times before! :)
