My friend Angela just sent me an email that made me giggle. It read, “If you saw ME in the back of a police car what would you think I got arrested for?” I was supposed to come up with an answer to that question and mail it back to her — for me that was easy. If Angela ever got arrested I am certain it would be for assaulting a passenger in her car with a beverage of some kind.
When Angela and I worked in the same office together at Lewis-Clark State College, whenever we made a lunch run, I returned to the office wearing a beverage. I think the most memorable occasion was the Frosty in my shoes. They were my favorite green pumps and she accessorized them with chocolate ice cream!
Every time it happened, Angela always swore — while holding her stomach, laughing and crying, all at once — that is was an accident, but it can’t really be an accident if it is done consistently, now can it? However, what I really wonder about is my own gullibility — why would I go out and get in the car with her time after time when I knew she was going to spill something sticky on me?
So there, you’ve heard the Angela story and what I think she would do to get arrested. Now I’m going to ask:
If you saw ME in the back of a police car
what would you think I got arrested for?
Leave your answer in the comments and I’ll get even with you later.
