A friend told Channel 2’s Mike Petchenik he doesn’t believe Royball was drinking before the crash.
“She loved life. She would never do this on purpose,” Blake Clark said. “She was an avid drinker, but not drinking and driving. She was smart when it came to that.”
Please, dear friends, if I am killed in a newsworthy manner, please do not describe me as an “avid drinker.”
Now, if I am merely wounded in a newsworthy manner, feel free to mention that I had a fondness for brown liquor and tell them where to send donations.
