Last night Wendy and I were driving to go grab some dinner and movie and I pulled over for the first time in North Carolina. Just for the record, I have expired plates in Illinois that I'm taking care of next week.

I apparently was doing 64 in a 50 work zone - although it is the road right by my house and I guarantee there was no one working - it wasn't like I was endangering anyone.

For the first time in my life I was pulled over and got a warning. Every other time I've been penalized within the maximum sentence of the law. I am still amazed.

Looks like Karma finally caught up with me - in a good way.

WOW! 14 over in a work zone and you only got a warning! I'd say that's good karma, or really good luck that night.
Glad you posted. I missed you :)

Welcome back to blogging, T.

You know, I'll take your posting as a warning. I've recently made my bicycle as my primary source of travel - and I run lights like a bastard. Stop signs, too. But not any more. Your good karma was a pestulent karma reminder for me. I'll heed that notice and be a happier person.

NB: Running stop signs and lights on a campus town is big big no no. Kids even get jaywalking tickets for not using the crosswalks these days. Another reason to NOT talk on the mobile while you're tramping across campus - you get hit by buses and not live. :( Save a life - your own, by composting your mobile.
