As I approached the top of the hill, school was over and I saw no vehicles there, but slowed anyway. As I came over the hill, I saw flashing red and blue lights behind me. Oh no! Sure enough, the policewoman said I had broken the speed limit. Not happy, I explained I had slowed down, but to no avail. I told her I hadn’t gotten a ticket in all the time I had been in Texas. She wasn’t impressed. I didn’t think it was fair. Finally, she gave me the ticket and as she walked away, said, “It’s just a warning.” Why does submitting to authority automatically cause an adverse reaction? I came up with all kinds of excuses although her radar showed my car had picked up speed and exceeded the speed limit coming down the hill. Shows once again a part of my nature that could use some work.
