I got pulled over the other day. The police officer stopped me for having an expired state inspection sticker–only in Texas. Okay, okay so it was over a year out of date! The man was actually really nice and after he gave me a ticket, he handed the kids stickers. What a deal!
This reminded me of the last time I got pulled over. I was nine months pregnant with my second child. I was not a pretty sight! My mom was with me because she was there to stay with my oldest when I went to the hospital. This time I was speeding. While I was looking for my registration, it started raining. I looked out at the officer and said, “Oh, dear, you’re getting wet!”
He verified my information, and to my surprise let me off with just a warning. When he had driven away, my mom looked at me in disbelieving wonder and said slowly and distinctly, “Oh. Dear. You’re getting wet?”
We have laughed and laughed over that. I was probably saved by the rain. Am I the only one who would say something that ridiculous when I’ve been pulled over?
