Oil drain Bolt stripped

Well, it happened. Ran out of time a couple of months ago and took my BroncoII in to have the oil changed instead of doing it myself. Put it up yesterday to give it a quick oil change, and found the oil drain plug rounded with no flat surfaces at all to grip onto with my socket. Tried other wrenches, but to no avail.

Does anyone care to assist me, other than taking the car back to the quick lube place. How would you remove the drain plug? Haven't tried the vice grips, last resort, and from what grip I can get on it now, it's in pretty tight.

Thanks for your help
