wow. i havent blogged in a week! not that any of you care, i'm sure, but i feel guilty.
maybe i'll catch up soon. or maybe i won't. but here's a little summary of recent life:
- went to a blogging workshop and met rachel from black*eiffel...definitely a highlight of the week
- been getting the NICEST cards to use for the card drive...for real, people are so sweet. i cant wait to send them off.
- went to idaho for the weekend to visit the sibs [and sib-in-law]. it involved lots of wind, giant hamburgers and many cows. more on that to come.
anyway, i do have an entertaining story, hence the title of this post. so on sunday we were getting ready to leave idaho, and b left to fill up the gas tank while i finished packing. on the way back to my sister's apartment he got pulled over by the rexburg PD for going 45 in a 25 mph zone -- this was a main road, mind you. they drive reeeeal slow in the country.
so he was upset, but not a big deal. we loaded the car, dropped my brother off and got on the highway. no joke -- less than 10 minutes later we saw a cop driving down the freeway in the opposite direction. he slowed down, put his lights on and turned around just as b started to slow down. and PULLED US OVER. 80 in a 65. second ticket in less than an hour.
b was pissed. actually, that's probably an understatement. he was really, really, really mad. and lucky me had to sit in the car with him while he cooled off. all i could do was laugh...what are the odds? honestly, if i had been driving, it probably would have happened to me too -- my average speeds are 50 mph city, 80 mph highway. i don't think my car operates at any other speeds, and those just aren't kosher in idaho.
anyway, one of the things i love most about b is that he rights himself pretty quickly, so an hour later he was back to his happy self and making plans to do online traffic school and avoid eating out for the next month to help contain some of the damage. still, gotta admit it was pretty hilarious. i guess my good cop luck ran out.
oh, and i don't think we'll be going to idaho ever again.
