Embarrassing Memories of January Past

   The officer pulled me over for driving five miles over the speed limit ( in a famous name day care van)  on my first day employed  as a director, over 25 years ago. 

 I drove that puppy, emblazoned with company name, logo, address and phone number, downhill into a school zone too fast. I saw the school zone sign too late, and Officer Friendly saw me. I couldn't deny it; so face burning, I begged mercy.

He sent me back up the hill in the van, and watched as I came down the hill at proper speed. He smiled broadly at me and waved as I went on my way.

Some teacher in his past must have yelled, "WALK!" one two many times, and sent him back up the hall to try again.

That guy was a great teacher himself.


  1. I think we all have been sent back to the side walk in front of the school, or to the end of the hall to walk back. Sorry dear, I think this one is funny.
