Mostly True Memoirs
I’ve Got A Mom Card!
I was doing 40 in a 30 zone.
It was a two-lane country road.
With no traffic at all.
The only reason I was going as slow as that was because up ahead is a big construction project.
The road is wrecked with potholes and gravel and debris.
A car came up from behind and rage-passed me, going 60 in the 30 zone.
I was mad.
I hope he hits a pothole.
While I was fuming and wishing ill will upon my fellow commuter, I saw flashing lights in the mirror.
I got pulled over for speeding.
For doing 40 in a 30.
Where was this cop just one minute ago?
It’s that other guy who deserves a speeding ticket, not me.
Thankfully, the cop was a very kind and polite young man.
He just gave me a warning.
In my youth, I used to cry my way out of tickets.
It worked like a charm.
The tides have turned.
Now I can play the Mom Card.
I feel so empowered.
Watch out, world!
I’m gonna start Momming like I’ve never Mommed before.
