I'm not paranoid...they really are following me!

I was driving out of town with my dad last weekend.  I approached a traffic light and it turned yellow.  What did I do?  Did I slow down?  No, completely against my natural instinct and inclination, I gunned it.  I think maybe, just maybe, I made it through before it turned red.  Maybe.

Me:  "It had one of those red light cameras on top."

My dad:  "Hmmmmm."

Me:  "It's OK, they'll send the ticket to you."  After all, I was driving his car.  <snicker>

OK, so it wasn't funny.  What's funny is that a few seconds later I saw flashing lights in my rear view mirror.  My heart started beating really, really fast.  Ohmygosh!!!  Then the police car was right behind me.  I slowed down and pulled to the right, ready to take my licks.  And...ya know what?  That black and white sped up, pulled around me, and got on the highway.

Whew!  Guess I dodged that bullet!

Thanks for "liking" my blog posts!!
