Whoa, I so totally just got pulled over by the cops on my way home from hanging out with _aqualung_.

Turns out my registration stickers expired in July and I apparently never renewed them. I don't know if it was the fault of the notoriously poor Postal service on my block, the fault of my incredibly lazy neighbors who were supposed to keep track of my mail while I was in Ohio this summer, or the fault of the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that I'm only now realizing I went through after the Rob breakup. I actually kind of doubt it was the latter, as my car also needed inspected in July, and I managed to get that (much more expensive thing) taken care of.

Who knows. At any rate, the moral of the story is that tomorrow I will be at AAA, getting this fixed.

And the good news is that my record remains intact for always managing to talk my way out of tickets whenever I've gotten pulled over. The trick? Always remember and really believe that cops hate paperwork. Don't give them a reason to want to fill it out, and, most times, they won't.

The added bonus? The cop who pulled me over was super cute. Distractingly cute. All young and doe-eyed. Mmmmm ...

It was very hard to focus on what it was I was trying to say when all I wanted to say was "wow, you are so pretty ..."

They were able to see your expired registration from the cop car? Scary. Two years ago I sort of failed to get my car inspected because I didn't really know you had to do it EVERY year in PA. It broke down and I had to bribe the tow truck guy to tow it because they're not supposed to take cars with expired inspections. Whoopsie.

Apparently it's all in some huge database somewhere. When he pulled me over I was clueless ... I had been listening to (and singing along with) music, and it was late, and I was turning over questions like "did I just blow through a light back there? I don't think so ..."

When he finally walked up to the car and said my registration was expired, I thought I must've just forgotten to put the sticker on, and started fishing stuff out of the glove box. And when I finally realized that the only registration card I could find in there really did say it expired in July, he said "I know. That's what the computer said."

So from what I can gather, this all went down because it was 1:00 am, there were no other cars on the street, and he was bored and decided to run my plates through his dashboard computer.
