Houston Wants Me

This morning I was telling one of my best friends about this story. I got to laughing hard about this and decided to put it in my blog. So, if anyone is really reading my blog, please leave a comment for me on this! This really happened to me about 35 + years ago. But it's as vivid in my mind as if it would be if it was yesterday.

I should write a country western song about this.

I didn't get put in jail! But almost. Once in Houston Texas. I was working for a Marketing Research Company delivering baby things for a big company. We each had a rental care and a map. Like me driving in Houston was a very scary thing. I got in a fender bender is all. I wasn't doing anything wrong and I hadn't been drinking. But the motorcycle cop said because I was an out of state driver I had to post bale. So, off to the jail we went. It was kind of funny. I was upset I hit this parked car. But no one was hurt. Anyway, I asked the cop if he could give me a ride to the police station as I was very nervous and did NOT want to drive! He said, "Lady, didn't you notice, I am on a motorcycle!!" LOL Nope, I didn't think. I'll never forget that courthouse in Houston. And it was hotter than hell that day. I got finger printed and a mug shot taken then paid a fine and was released. I went back to the hotel and I told my supervisors for that gig I wasn't driving anymore no way no how in Houston. By the next day I got an ear ache. I went to a Dr. He said, "Go home!" So, I flew home alone without my coworkers. I was sick at heart and sick physically, too. Dave had a sad case on his hands. I hope this story is amusing to you as it sure has been funny to me after the fact.
