Confession is good for the soul or so they say. Now Ethel, you must remember just because someone does not confess does not mean it didn't happen. So, here is how it went down. I also got "stopped" about a month ago by the "poe-poe". I left home is a big hurry on my way to "get my hair done" (that's another story for another time). My SIL doesn't like to ride with me in the city because I can reach my destination in about 1/2 the time she could. HA! tee-hee!!....So, I'm truckin along on a side road and as I topped the hill the "powers that be" had installed a red light and had also reduced the speed limit....whew! I got the green light and zoomed on through, just as I rounded a curve there "he" sat in his little patrol car on the median. As I passed my heart skipped a beat, respirations increased, the ole "fight or flight" response sat in OMG---Now what???? I eased on down the hill..no lights....or so I thought. I then looked in the rear view mirror and there he came like an old dog after a bone! He still had not flipped the lights on so "self thought"...we are home free on this one.....NOT.....there went the lights!!!!!!! FULL ARREST!!!!!! blood pressure sky rocketed, respirations increased (more like hyperventilation), sweating, clammy!!! I pulled over prepared to get the speech frantically searching the glove compartment for proof of insurance unable to find that little card....seems we get a new one every month.... Yes, I knew I was speeding, yes I was in a hurry, yes, YaYa knew better. By the time the officer got to my window I was shaking like a leaf trying to figure out what I was going to say and remind myself to keep quiet. I suppose he felt sorry for this ole granny!! HA!!! cause all I got was "the talk"...no ticket!!! I could just see myself peeping from behind bars!!! HA!!!!
Moral of this story....just because you say it doesn't make it so/ or just because you DON"T say it doesn't mean it didn't happen......is that clear????? I know what I mean anyway!!! HA!!!!!
