Ok, you are never going to believe what happened to me today! Never! You know why you will never guess? Because it is so fucking crazy and stupid and NOT in a funny, interesting moment of life kind of a way... and, to top it all off, I am pretty sure it is all the lovely Hugh's fault...
Here's the story:
I got pulled over for having a taillight out... a fix it ticket right? Ok, so a bummer and annoying and, you know, hoping no one I know drives by... but, none the less, just a fix it ticket. Then, of course, the officer wants to see my registration and proof of insurance. What do you think happened? I had 6 years worth of "proof" but not this years! Not 2006! So, that becomes a fix it ticket as well and I am pissed, but not really, but sort of because I have to actually go to court to show them that I have had the taillight repaired and that I was in fact, insured on the day I was pulled over... more of a hassle...
BUT, then he looks at Eva and then at me and then at my license and then does the whole "look over" thing again and then this conversation happens:
Cop Ma'am, is that child your daughter?
Cop Can you prove it?
Self Uh, yeah, but not like, this second. I am thinking, Eva, baby, call me Mommy!
Cop Well, she seems like she is your daughter but I like to caution parents of children of other ethnicities to carry proof on them... just in case!
Just in case you have to prove your child is your child? How do I prove any of my kids are mine and that I haven't just snatched them off the street? I tell you Internet, I was freaking out.
I am curious to know what you all think...
And just how, you wonder, is all of this Hugh's fault? He noticed the taillight was out on Saturday.
I have to let the lovely Hugh off the hook as he is very upset and feeling great anger towards law enforcement in general...
