"Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, [Reckless] is free at last!"

I couldn't resist throwing in a little adulterated MLK.  It's not really that earth-shattering, but I can FINALLY quit feeling like a criminal.

It's taken ninety days of painfully careful driving, but my deferred adjudication is over.  I am no longer on probation with the State of Texas for the two stop signs I blew through (oops). 

I think I have learned something in my probationary period:

If there is an officer of the law behind you, turn right at the first available street or parking lot, pull over to the side of the road, and send a text or make a phone call or get out a piece of gum or something.  Otherwise, the nervousness of having them behind you as you drive may cause you to do something illegal.  Like not notice a stop sign and drive right through it.  Twice.

  1. That is good advice! Or,make sure you have the kids in the car. Maybe the officer will go easy on you if you get all the kids to start crying :)

  2. Nah. I had a kid in the car both times. You know hose HV cops are serious. And forget about flirting your way out of it. I'm a ma'am to them now.
