Today is the letter J when I thought I would share an embarrassing story with you. I know……. what could you possibly NOT know about me already?!?!
Well, did I ever tell you that I’ve been in JAIL?!?!
Okay, your eyes had better be BIG and WIDE and you better be thinking “WHAT?!?!?!”
Or, you know me in real life and you’re thinking “What only once?!”
Yup, that’s me. In JAIL!!
Now, here is the story, of course not near as dramatic as you were thinking.
In 2000 the new Escondido Police, Fire and Jail was opened. Since my daughter Selena is part of the Escondido Police Department we were allowed to tour the building before it was open to the public.
OF COURSE I wanted my picture taken INSIDE of a pristine, clean jail cell. I mean SERIOUSLY! Can you blame me?! I can say I went to Jail without all the weird and negative things that some visitors have to go through.
Of course, we immediately sent a picture to my son Zachary who thought it was A REAL PICTURE!!!
Now, you know Selena and I kept egging him on because really!? WHO gets a picture in jail that hasn’t really been arrested?
By the time we came clean I had been driving erratically, texting while driving, ran a stop sign, ran a red light, and did 60 through a school zone. Released on bail by his sister.
Now, just the fact that my son didn’t even blink an EYE about the charges makes me question his opinion of the way his mother drives!!! I promise I’m NOT that bad!! I promise!!
SHAME on you Zachary!!
So? Have you ever been in jail? Okay, better yet would you have wanted your picture taken in a clean jail cell too??
