Ticket Tablet Man

Ive seen him, trolling the school zones, hiding in the "inconspicuous" spots..Him and his fancy smanchy navy blue Ford Expedition.
I have even sung his praises to my children while they are riding with me..because, you KNOW I am a tad bit of a lead foot..I'm trying to do better, really honestly I have been. Heck, I have even been buckling up lately.--Thank you, I know.  
But yesterday..Yesterday I was coming down a HILL..after a house call with a girlfriend..We were getting her entry in order. Its going to be awesome, by the way..anyhoo--  back to my story.
After going right by him, not really thinking one bit about my speed, because I was thinking about what I had just accomplished at my girlfriends house..he whipped out of his hiding place and chased after me with his red and blue interior lights just a flashing.
This is just what I needed today. Coming from a total high of a decorating trifecta to getting pulled over.
He strolled up to the ultra conservative white Honda Odyssey and asked me why I was going so fast..
So fast? I say?
Yes, was his reply..you were going 37 in a 25.
DOWN A HILL.
total buzz kill...
25 down a hill.
guess how much THAT was worth..
$157
I'm ashamed to say, I will not be giving "officer undercover"  the thumbs up when I see him around my town anymore..


I will be using another finger.
Undercover, of course..
