I'M A FUGITIVE!!! THERE IS A WARRANT OUT FOR MY ARREST! MY HORRIBLE CRIME?????
WAIT FOR IT...............
LEAVING MY CAR PARKED IN THE STREET IN FRONT OF MY HOME.
I know, what a disappointment.
Here's the story...It was the evening of my daughter's birthday. My husband pulled the car out of the driveway and left it in the street so that my POOR, CRIPPLED, Mother could park in the driveway. After the wild party which lasted until the late hour of 7:00 pm, we put the kids to bed, cleaned up, sat on the couch and vegged and then forgot ALL about it.
The next day we found a ticket on the car for parking in the street overnight. So lame. We live in the suburbs, there is no street cleaning and garbage pickup wasn't that day. No reason to have a stupid law against parking in the street. The only reason I can think of is for the snow plows or just to raise revenue at the expense of tired parents like us who occasionally forget.
Anyway, the BEST part of this story is that I am actually considering turning myself in!
A day or so in jail! I could totally use the rest and a break from the daily minutiae of my day. It sounds so inviting to me. I envision laying on my cot, reading some magazines, and having all my meals brought to me. Meals! Ones that I didn't shop for or cook myself!
Oh the glory!
No work, no kids. And this is punishment? It certainly doesn't fit the crime! I have heard of cruel and unusual punishment..but this is more like well deserved punishment! My town has some pretty wealthy people in it..I'm sure the jail is lovely. It probably even has curtains.
My other thought is to turn myself in on Mother's Day. Make it a little "Daycation". I'll get a mani-pedi first, bring my new Sarah Pekkanen book, and maybe since I'll have the time on my hands, I'll start working on my own book. Stay tuned!
