I've learned that friends are more valuable than practically anything else and that there are times when it's really, really good to have them around (Foco... cough). I've learned that it's possible to change one's life philosophy just by hearing one sentence from someone's mouth. I've learned that spontaneity is underrated... and I've learned that continuity is valuable, too. I've learned everything, basically, that my corny intermediate school teachers tried to tell me; I've learned everything they say at the end of those dumb high school movies when everyone's realized the truth of those great cliches we hear so much about.
And I've learned- and here's my point- I've learned that there are times when you just have to make a tough decision. At times someone's life may actually be on the line. I guess you've all heard this before because I'm talking about Good Sams.
I've had the dubious honor of having to make the decision to call the Good Sam line and trust me, I'm very glad I did call. I know I made the right decision. Everyone knows that Dartmouth kids party a bit (ever seen the "Drinking Time" video on YouTube?) and that the drinkers here like to think they can hold their alcohol. But there are times when it goes too far and then it gets a little scary and then we start thinking, shoot, where did I put that Good Sam card again?
Homecoming's right around the corner and let's face it, there's probably going to be some alcohol involved. Don't be too stupid. Know your limits and know the Good Sam number so that if someone goes too far you can help them out.
603-646-4000. It's worth it to save a life.
