    What a bad set of choices made that night.I bet she wishes that she’s not “that girl” now . Stupid stupid .At 21 and 2 young kids ,most likely more bad choices ? Drinking & driving when she should have been a home tending to their needs, more bad choices . Far too many lives changed because of bad choices . Uber is like Delta ready when you are , use them ! ! !
