S.O.L. #9 out of 31
Living on the edge of the Law
Yeap It happened...My kids and I were driving along Sunday afternoon on the back country roads after visiting my husband’s family on the farm. My husband was trailing a ways behind us on his Harley enjoying the sunny afternoon ride. With my mind elsewhere, we came to a small town to pass through when IT happened…..
the red and blue light
pulled me over!!!!!
Seems I was traveling a bit fast through their small town. Oops!
I’m sure my poor kids were a bit nervous in the back seat as they had never experienced getting pulled over by the police before. So after he took my license and insurance, I proceeded to try and calm them down. I told them about the whole process and assured them that everything was going to be alright. Thinking this was a good time to learn a lesson,
I tried to throw in a little responsibility lecture about consequences, etc
After sitting alongside the road for over a half and hour, I pull away with only a warning (Wheww!! Lucky!) Then overheard my son giving his sister some advice. He suggested, “Don’t let Mom drive you to your wedding. She will make you late.”
I chuckled since his sister is only four years old.
Then he proclaimed,
“I’m riding with DAD next time.”
(Ahha! Lesson Learned!!)
