GREAT NEWS WORLD!

so i got a speeding ticket in las vegas when brad and i were coming home from california in july. i was going 93 in a 70 mph zone. woops. but LUCKILY, and i mean LUH-KUH-LEE the cop was generous and since my record was clean he wrote on the ticket that i was going 80 so that A. it wouldnt affect my insurance and B. so the fine would be less. so i noticed days later on the ticket that it didn't have the amount i had to pay and i read on the back that if there was no total amount due written on the ticket that i would need to appear in traffic court on October 29 and the cop had highlighted the date. i've been freaking out. because really- i dont want to have to go to las vegas to traffic court. no shpank you. and i didnt want to not pay it and have a warrant out for my arrest- BEEN THERE DONE THAT! ( i had a warrant out for my arrest for about 3 years and when i went to the court house to see how much my ticket was i was apprehended by security/cops and told that i had to the pay the fine in full right then or go to jail. luckily i had money that people had given us for our wedding in my purse. dodged that bullet!)

so anyway- just called to see what i needed to do. the ticket because of the nice cop (not to be confused with one of the hot cops from arrested development) was reduced from 190 to 90 dollars. so i paid it and dont have to go to court after all!

praise be.

WHAT IS THIS ABOUT BEING APPREHENDED AND ALMOST GOING TO JAIL?????? It's a good thing that moms don't know everything that goes on. You were blessed about that policeman in Vegas.

Thats too bad.. I thought you might come visit me in Las Vegas for a moment. Hopefully you'll get arrested next time you're driving through and I'll come save you.
