You won’t believe this one…

July 25, 2006

So today I have a bunch of errands to run… orders to drop off, supplies to pass on, paper pin order completed and a Super Walmart run up in Hanover.  We are just about in Hanover and Evan looks out the window and spots a McD’s and proceeds to say, "Mommy, can you go to McDonald’s to get me a snack, I’m REALLY hungry."  I couldn’t pass up the lure of the junk-food cheeseburger and happily obliged.  Up at the window I order three happy meals, pay, pick up order, toss back a juice box to hold Evan over until I can pull into a spot and hand back his meal.  So I am getting out of the van and a police car pulls up behind me, blocking me in.  Hmmm… I wonder what’s up.  As I begin to walk to the kids door the officer begins to address me, "Ma’am, we got a call from someone behind you that was concerned you may be driving while intoxicated."  Um, WHAT?!?!?  "Have you been drinking?"  Um, Sir it’s a rare occasion that I drink to begin with and besides that I am THREE months pregnant and I have three children in the van with me.  I may be crazy, but I am not stupid!  He looks a bit embarrassed to even be having this conversation with me, asks me my name and some info but does not ask for my license or anything else, even though I gladly offer it.  "Maybe you were just reaching for something."  Sir I have three demanding kids in my back seat it’s very probable that I was reaching for something.  He excuses himself, I pass Evan his meal and get back in the van and fight back hysterical laughter.  After a minute of though I realize the busy-body that called me in must have been behind me as I was signing a couple of checks and writing out my deposit slip.  My bad, I should know better than to try and multitask in the van.  Besides it’s not like I went into the oncoming lane or something, maybe I skimmed the shoulder a bit but please, accusing me of being DRUNK.  That was definitely a first for me.  Still have to laugh about it.  Even called Vince so he could share in the laughter.

Seriously people, this was a totally true story! I know I have you laughing too.
