Why Me?

The day was spent finishing up my daughter, E'lyses (13yrs. old) Halloween costume she decided she wanted to change it 2 days before the big day. So we shopped and had a lot of fun. She decided on a purple fairy. While shopping I spotted some pink fairy wings and of course couldn't pass them up for myself. So last night I had to pick up my son from his girlfriends house after they had gone to a wedding. Being that I don't like driving that far away from the house at night by myself I asked if E'lyse wanted to go with me. She said yes then said we should dress as fairies to get him. Me liking to dress up and wanting to wear my pink wig and wings I said, 'Sure!" So we get ready and head over. It is now about 10:30 I am driving to get there and passed the main road I was to turn on so I flip a u and get back to the road and turn right. All of the sudden red and blue lights flashing behind me! EEEKKK!! What is it about these lights that scare the tar out of me? So I pull over in the first parking lot. The cop walks up the van door, shines his light in my face that has sparkles, makeup and me in my pink hair and wings and says,"Well I have never stopped anyone with pink hair before." He takes my license and heads to his car to check it out. My daughter is laughing so hard saying," This is so cool. You getting stopped by a cop dressed as a fairy. Wait till I tell my friends!" So he left me with a note of how to turn a right corner and stay in the close lane and a good evening. Thank you Mr. Police man for not giving me a ticket. I appreciate it!
So this is my life. Why me? Why not I say. I love life and will continue to get caught being a dork throughout it. So what can we do but smile and enjoy! Have a great Friday! Hugs, Bobbi Jo
