Friends Don't Let Friends Drive

An interesting story, excerpted from the Denver Post

Sometime after midnight, Allen hinted that he might be leaving. Richardson said his friend shouldn't drive. So he took Allen's truck key off its large keychain - in hindsight, a stroke of genius - and said, in a joking way, that by swallowing his ignition key, he'd make sure his friend didn't leave.

Richardson hurried to a nearby medical center and told an emergency-room doctor what had happened.

"He said, 'No, really, why are you here?"' Richardson recalled.

The doctor ordered an X-ray, and there it was.

Hello, pickup-truck key.

"The doctor said it would pass in about two days," Richardson said. "That's when it hit me. I was going to ... out a truck key!"
