So funny you mention that about cops. I always put on this stupid-looking 'I am an innocent and nice person' look on my face, and drive the speed limit (except, of course, for Arizona, but who knew) and have even put both hands on the blinkin' steering wheel. I embarrass myself, really. It must look moronic to the cops, they must laugh their butts off when people do this. Oh boy, unless of course I am the only one who does it.
One night when I was young, single and foolish, I was driving over the Lion's Gate bridge after a rowdy evening at the Ritz (any Vancouverites recall the Ritz?). I was quite inebriated. Hey, it was the early 70s, everybody was quite inebriated, behind the steering wheel or not. Anyway, I almost hit a motorcyclist who was, it turned out, trying to pull me over.
Ahh, the power of young women. That handsome young cop only asked for my name and telephone number, no driver's license, and he ever-so-politely made no mention at all of my rather obvious tipsyness.
