And What Did Delaware?
A New Jersey!
I love the childhood rhymes and plays on words from days gone by that fly through my memory when I cross state lines.
However, it is never fun to realize that there are red and blue lights flashing in your rear view mirror as you fly through Maryland.
OOPS!! The speed limit went from 65 in DC down to 55 in Maryland and as I was in the far left lane, I never saw the change in speed limit signs on the far right. I am totally guilty.
I was also heavily involved in listening to Charade by Sandra Brown on my audible.
Officer, I’m guilty! And I’m so sorry. And I’m not from here, and not familiar with this road, and I’m just going to Delaware and I’ve been driving for hours and hours…..
I sat patiently in my car while she took my license and registration. My hands were shaking. I texted home. “I’m pulled over!” “Serves you right! You drive like you sew. Pedal to the metal!”
And I got off with a warning. My lucky day.
The cruise control from then on stayed at 55 even though traffic was now flying by me on either sides at a rapid pace.
