I almost blew by a speed trap this morning at the 20mph section near the state park of Lake Wyola. Knowing that the police love to sit there I am usually pretty good about slowing down until I can see if there is someone sitting there who would just love to put me out a hundred bucks. Today though, the lake was caped in a diaphanous fog with the morning diffused sunlight through it that was so beautiful, I completely forgot to slow down. Actually for one moment forgot entirely I was even driving; I could only suck in my breath and then sigh. Lucky for me I think the policeman may also have been stunned into awe by the water and sky. Now I am picturing the conversation that would have been.
Hello officer, beautiful morning. Yes I know I was doing 15 over the posted speed limit. I am usually way better about slowing down here, but I drive by the place every day and I have never seen it looking so gorgeous. I was paralyzed by exquisite scenery and couldn’t brake.
smile smile pray.
I’m sure this would work way better than the last time I was speeding “I didn’t realize I was coming up on a town and I was listening to Donna Summer’s I feel love”
Head’s up on a holiday tomorrow is Give Flowers To a Stranger Day
