(see previous post)
... because I got a blasted ticket(!) Gees, I was not even speeding much. You may say 'much?', but Texas has many an open road where it's just ??? (sorry for the poor word choice) ...dumb to go any slower. I was on a 3-lane feeder road that was empty with no side roads entering for a long ways. 60 in a 50. **sighhh** AND, my registration was out. For the record, I've never gotten a ticket for overdue registration. Aarrghhh.
Now, the registration part... plain brain lapse on my part. Fine. Yes. Totally slipped past me. I swear, you'd think I was pregnant and donating brain cells. Wait, I was. When the registration came due was when I was pregnant-close to 2 months at the time and I was one tired pup. Yeah, yeah, I know-excuses, excuses... but I honestly was so dog tired during that time. Still no excuse.
The pain in the backside of it is WHERE I have to go to remedy all. We live 'out in the country' so to speak. Our little one light town is 5 minutes from us... but it's a one-light-town... so when we say, "Going to town", we mean further away. Then there's REALLY "going to town"... that's even farther and it is HOUSTON. I had left my doc's office which is on the edge of H-town~ a place that has such a far reaching grasp that even with being 15 minutes away from doc's office, I was still in the "big city"... where I got my ticket. That means DEEP downtown to take care of it at their scheduled date and time of 7 PM- that's in the evening(!) -and it's a place where only one would want to go if they were armed. Now, I have my CHL (concealed handgun license), but that doesn't mean I want to arm myself.
Hence, the "Arrgghhh" of it all. Hmmm, maybe I can get something done by mail... will have to make some calls and see. I sure hope so.
