Departure 17

As I drove down a back road in Winchester Ct. a while ago, this thought came to my mind. I didn't happen... but it could have. Smiles!

Whoop! Whoop!
Blue lights... . Ut-oh!

__"License and registration please."
__"Sir... have you been drinking? Texting?  Step out of the car please."
__"Now, walk that straight line. Oh... ok, Now, will you take a sobriety test?"

__Why yes, Officer, of course I'll take that test."

__"Zero! Uh, sir, are you taking drugs? Do you know why I stopped you?"

__No, Officer, not drinking, no drugs, no texting. Why did you pull me over?" 

__"Sir, I termed you as... an  -ERRATIC DRIVER-!"

__Well, Officer, first there was that dead skunk, then the pot-hole, and the loose manhole cover, The puddle? I couldn't be sure what was underneath all that water. Did you see that doe crossing the road... with her fawn? I  steered around them all; I suppose, then, I could be seen as...
 an  -ERRATIC DRIVER-, dodging about as I did."

__"Have a nice evening sir."
