po po power!
Speaking of love - it's Valentines Day on Monday! Who can guess what I'll be doing...? I bet you guessed wrong because it's way more fun than you'd expect.
I'm going to court. Yes, that's right - I'm a criminal. I will be on trial. Not only is that super fun news, but I also get to drive all the way to Wellsville to do it! Yep, 2 hours there, 2 hours back = 4 hours of glorious driving time on Valentines Day. I'm sure you're dying to know what trouble I got myself into this time... well, it's pretty dumb. I wish I could give an exciting story like the time I was in trouble with the police for my potato gun. Nope. You see, the sad part about this story was that I was actually trying to follow the speed limit. We all have our times when we are knowingly speeding 5-10 (some people 15-20) mph over the speed limit. Not this time. I knew that Wellsville was a speedtrap and I didn't want a ticket! So, I responsibly put my cruise control on 31 mph (the limit was 30). So, much to my surprise I suddenly had flashing lights behind me. Knowing that I couldn't possibly be guilty of speeding, I willingly pulled over and waited to see what the officer had to say.
Apparently I was in a school zone and the limit was 20. Meaning, I was going 11 over in a double-fine zone. MAAAAN! I have the worst driving luck! it is especially sad when I have good intentions. So, the bottom line? $209 poorer, mandatory court appearance on Valentines Day, and adios to my clean record. I guess it could be worse.
