    Watching the live soccer match between Denmark and Sweden on my laptop this afternoon, I had no idea what was waiting me later…

    Watching Denmark vs. Sweden live on my lappie in Savannah...

    Action in Savannah.

    It’s Saturday night so I decide to go out and have a look at the Savannah night life. Just me. Don takes me in to town and drops me off in the center of the bar district. I do some solo pub crawling and end up at The Rail, a curious looking, chilled pub/bar with lots of memorabilia on the walls.

    At some point I strike up a conversation with a girl and her brother. Nature’s calling so I leave my drink and go to the restroom to do my business. Back with my glass of beer, I take another sip, is feeling good, not drunk at all. Within the next minute I start feeling really weird, dizzy and I instinctively know that someone put something in my drink.

    I don’t even get to tell anyone or to get a hold of the table or anything: BANG! and I’m on the floor, one man down, and Houston we have a problem. Consciousness just left me like that. Some guys help me to get back on my feet (I think my unconsciousness lasted just a few seconds) and it’s all very shocking, my heart racing, legs shaking. Wallet is still in my pocket.

    I feel pretty scared and see just enemies in the bar all of a sudden. I tell the bartender that someone just put something in my drink and that I need help. He calls the ambulance and tells me to wait outside. I sit down, waiting, still shocked about the whole thing. 20 minutes later the ambulance comes, lights on, and the kind guys put me in the ambulance, take my blood pressure and a blood test. The guys do a good job and don’t seem too alarmed about the situation.

    I’m told that my blood pressure is very, very good (pulse rate:52, didn’t get the other results) and that they can’t see anything wrong at all. They assure me that whatever I got in there won’t come back to me (that was my worry), I sign a paper saying that I accept not getting hospitalized, thank the ambulance guys, and get a taxi back to the house. We don’t mind a bit of WT action once in a while, do we, but to me, this was a bit over the top.

    End of the night for the Silver Monk, and how fair is that…?

    On this day..

      Hola hola,

      seems to be a new sport worldwide… just had two other stories like that. Just that you were very lucky – the other ones got rid of mostly all their belongings…
      Take care – no more weird tasting beer….
