Busted for Speeding on Mother's Day

It didn't start out bad, but I have to say...UGH and GRRRRRRR!!!!

Here I am on Mother's Day doing the motherly thing of taking my daughter to the mall to find a dress. My son and one of his friends have come along for the ride. Just setting the scene here...

Cruising down Interstate 30, and I decide to pop in some AC/DC to get the blood pumping. Enjoying my new little Honda Si. It's so much fun to drive! I guess I stomped the accelerator when the song started. I mean, come's "Thunderstruck!" Who doesn't get a little hyper and turn into a speed demon when that song plays. It's meant for that. Sporting events, fast cars and breaking the rules.

Lyrics please...... My thoughts in RED

I was caught By the Highway Patrol
In the middle of a railroad track (Thunder) Nope, it was I-30
I looked 'round, And I knew there was no turning back (Thunder) Damn, I'm getting a ticket!
My mind raced
And I thought what could I do? (Thunder) He flipped on his lights
And I knew
There was no help, no help from you (Thunder) Like you could....
Sound of the drums
Beatin' in my heart Police scare me.
The thunder of guns! Not really...I didn't rob a bank or anything
Tore me apart
You've been - thunderstruck!
Rode down the highway
Broke the limit, we hit the ton Damn sure did. 83 in a 70
Went through to Texas, yeah Texas We all speed here
And we had some fun Didn't last long
We met some guys, Just one and that was enough
Those dancers who gave us good times Bullshit, it was the darn highway patrol
Broke all the rules, played all the fools Broke 'em and will PAY not PLAY
Yeah, yeah, they, they, they blew our minds Cuz they outta be out catchin real criminals!
And I was shakin' at the knees
Could I come again please. Next week....maybe ye ole highway patrol will be elsewhere
Yeah the ladies were too kind Most of us mothers are
You've been - thunderstruck, thunderstruck
Yeah yeah yeah, thunderstruck
Thunderstruck, yeah, yeah, yeah
Said yeah, it's alright's not
We're doing fine
Yeah, it's alright
We're doing fine Whatever, I'm not doing fine. I'm sure gonna pay one though!

No more AC/DC for me.

lol yeah, AC/DC will definitely do that to ya! I get that way when I'm listening to Toby Keith myself!

That stinks! Hope your daughter found the right dress anyway.

Meg said...

Yes, ACDC can be dangerous--especially when the bagpipes come on in Highway to Hell--I'm totally into pipes!

OH - that sucks to get pulled over on a holiday. I have gotten pulled over on Thanksgiving before...what irony.

That definitely could ruin a day. My last speeding ticket was when I was trying to pass someone. I thought you could speed up to pass but there is definitely a limit to how far over you can go. I was passing downhill so that did not help and then I was trying to get over because a car was coming straight at me. I think the cop was feeling guilty because he could have given me a $150.00 ticket but just gave me a $75.00 one instead.

OMG! He could have let you go since it was Mother's Day! Oh well, I hope the rest of your day was good.
