Tuesday, August 31, 2010She pulled up just a little after 7:15 this morning.
She parked not far from a sign that said no student parking. There are four on the cul-de-sac.
She got out and started walking toward the school leaving her car behind.
It's a nice car--a van. The windows were all painted in bright colors. A side window had a cross and the words Jesus loves you. The back window proclaimed that she loves two boys and that's she's cool.I ran out my front door wearing pajamas, house shoes and a t-shirt. My hair wasn't combed and I looked like something the dogs drug up. I didn't care how I looked. I wanted to warn this young Christian she was going to get a $65.00 ticket. I didn't know her name. I thought maybe Mary, or Martha. Since I didn't know I yelled "Hey." She kept walking and never looked back. Not to be discouraged I kept walking and yelling "Hey." She kept going all the way to the school about 2 and half blocks. When we got to the school I turned back. I shouldn't have yelled "Hey." I should have tried Mary or Martha---or Jezebel.
All the students walking along smiled probably thinking to themselves, "Looks like the dirty old man lost the race."
The $65.00 fine will be waiting for her when Miss Cool returns.
It's the "Jesus Loves You" sign and the cross that bothers me.
I would like to know what the policeman thought as he wrote out her ticket.
