Made My Night
I would like to thank one of our local police officers for pulling over a speeding motorist last night, right across the street from our house.
The police lights lit up our front room in sporadic bursts of blue and red, drawing the kids' attention like a cat to a laser pointer.
My kids were so fascinated with what they called 'the crime scene' out the window that I was able to enjoy two chapters of a book in relative peace while indulging myself with an entire bag of unshared peanut M&Ms. They didn't even hear me open the package!
It was the most blissful 17 minutes of my day.
