As the World Turns.
I was loooking forward to a dinner at Wyndham Resort in the Catskills. On the way thete, i stopped in St.Johnsville . A man walked by my car as I was ready to take off and said: You know your inspection is three months overdue?"
I said:"Thanks. Are you a cop?" He wasn't but his kind observation just ruined the rest of my weekend. I usually go through inspection/registration controls on Sunday mornings at least once a week. There isn't much else to do for the police out there in the rural areas.
This time , I had reasons to be nervous. On Wednesday, my car is due in the shop for a complete brake job, discs, rrotors and calipers.
Of course, the overthinking started before the great dinner arrived at our table. Would they impound the car? Would there be moving violations, points on my license. my name in the local paper?
i had a gin & tonic ( it was happy Hour) and found out that happy hour means that not only the price was chopped in half but also the amount of gin in my drink!
I set out very early this morning, passed eight speed controls on the thruway but did not cause any concern.- Thank you, BMWs and Audis- as long as you are in the left lane, i will not fear. I made it home without a trail of parts or smoke following me. There will be no driving until the car is fixed and legal. i used to be so devil-may-care!
