I was stopped by a policeman on the way to have lunch with my Mom a couple of weeks ago. Under some conditions I might have ben apprehensive, but I was going the speed limit and hadn’t been driving recklessly or broken any laws so when he asked me if I knew why he had stopped me a bunch of replies went through my head:
“Because you’re bored?”
“Because you’re feeling officious today?”
“Because you’re just a little bit sadistic?”
What I did say was “No sir.” I’m crazy, but not generally stupid. He told me one of my brake lights was out and sent me on my way.
