My Day In Court
When you get a ticket in Texas, you have to go down to the courthouse of the city where you were "written up" so to speak. I don't know how it works if you are travelling, but who cares since I wasn't that far away from my crime scene. I got up early and got ready so I could be there as soon as they opened. No, I did not wear a tight skirt and low cut blouse as my husband suggested. When I came home: Roger: How did it go? Me: It was super quick. I didn't even have to wait in line, there was barely anybody there. Roger: Did you throw yourself at the mercy of the court? Me: I was so disappointed! It didn't even get to go into the courtroom. There's just a lobby with windows like at the DMV, I paid my $162, promised to get no tickets for 30 days (I'll just stay home for a month!), and after that they dismiss it. Roger: Then why are you smiling? Me: The lady said I had the cutest hair ever.
