School don’t teach you the right things. David was sure of that. Of course they taught you how to read, write, count and all that stuff that might one day come in handy; but the real stuff, the stuff of life, they left out.

Schools didn’t teach you how to cope when you’ve just been dumped. They don’t teach you what to do with telephone sales pitches. They left the important stuff out.

They also don’t teach you how react when you wake up in a strange bed.

David was just lying there, unsure of whether or not to move. Where was he? Whose bed was this? He hadn’t a clue.

The last thing he could clearly remember was Jacqui, Bobby and Nick attempting to sing some God-awful country song in the bar.

Bar? Oh yeah.

They had gone out after work. Just for a few drinks. Well, that had been the plan. David was reasonably sure he’d had more than just a few.

Why couldn’t he handle his drink like any other grown man?

Why was he in a stranger’s bed?

Something moved in the bed next to him. David carefully moved his head to the right to see. What if it was some form of dangerous creature? He could be eaten alive.

It was worse. It was a person.

It was Archie… and… Greg… and David was pretty sure Sara.

People then. As in the plural of person.

It wasn’t as bad as David had originally thought. Here he had lay think that he had made an idiot of himself getting drunk and passing out. Worse, still making a pass at someone and having to wake up awkwardly in his or her bed.

No, it was fine. He’d just fell asleep with some other drunks. That was fine. That was shared shame. He could deal with that.

Providing of course that he hadn’t been drunk and taken part in some odd foursome.

But that would never happen… hopefully.

David let out a slow breath, closed his eyes and went back to sleep.

Oh c'mon, we know he got drunk and did odd foursomeness w/ them.
Very interesting use of intoxification there.
And mad love for Hodges in general.

teehehe, oh this made me giggle. Of course any image of David as a man who can't hold his drink does that to me. lol. And you know, he is so right, they totally don't teach you how to deal with that stuff in school... and yet they teach you how long it takes two trains at different speeds to meet in the middle... thats just screwy lol.

Bad writer! You made us all thinking the same and then... *pout* But I have to admit that I can imagine the panic very well; waking up in a strange bed is weird enough, hearing someone breathing and not remembering the night's events. But waking up and finding three people breathing... Hm, I would have some interesting thoughts then, too.

Okay, let him sleep, the hangover is punishment enough, isn't it? *lol*
Thanks for the story!

Love, Electra

OMG! *sqeaks* Bar? Oh yeah. Yeah David, that might be important. This was so funny, becaue he can only seem to answer his questions with more questions. Bar. But who was there? And how many drinks had he had? And what happened afterward? What an incredibly difficult pair of shoes to be in... but so amusing for readers!

Absolutely love this! Thanks for posting and answering the challenge! *is excited* I'll have to start making the banners soon. Awesome work!

Re: *snorfle*
Sadly taken from personally experience.
I'd been out with friends and woke up in a strange bed with three other people. Was very worried.
Turns out I'd crashed at my friends house, which I'd never been to before. We'd all just piled in the double bed and gone to sleep.
Heh, not as exciting as David's life.

Re: *snorfle*
You life and also David's life seem to bear more surprises than my own life does. *curse*

I think I should make a change! *smirk*

And to be honest, I wouldn't mind waking up next to Greg myself... *sigh*

*realityslapshead* Hey, a girl CAN dream...

Love, Electra
