Thank you, Officer!

On Wednesday, Meg and I had to run up to Radio Shack to buy a wireless phone jack because directv was coming out to install a DVR. I thought they were coming on Friday, but nope, I was wrong. So, I loaded Meg up into the car and off we went.

Imagine my shock when I look in the rear-view mirror and see a cop. It's like he knows I've just looked up because he immediately turns on his lights. I am at a stop sign, so I pull thru the intersection and pull over to the side of the road. He proceeds to give me a ticket for speeding...

I write all of this as a preface to the story I'm about to tell.

Last night, we were at my SIL's for my MIL's birthday celebration. Well, cute little Meg has this conversation with everyone at the party...

Meg: My mommy got to meet a police officer.
Audience: Really?
Meg: Yes. He pulled her over because she was speeding.
Audience: That's not good.
Meg: I know. But, my mom got signed up.
Audience: Laughter.

Meg thinks I signed up when I was signing the ticket. What she thinks I signed up for is beyond me. Maybe I'm going to the officer's ball...do they really have those?
