I woke up laughing this morning. It's funny how the mind can take us places. What made me laugh...I was thinking about when my Sister joined the Detroit Police Department. I was working at Detroit Recorder's Court - Probation Department. At some point shortly after she was stationed at the (I forget which one) Precinct, I decided I would join to protect her - me being her big sister. In my mind, we would be patrol partners.
When my stepfather found out my plans, he said, "I can see it now. Somebody pointing a gun at her and she'll be walking toward them saying, 'put the gun down now, let's just talk about this' ". Hahahahaha. Then he said, "all somebody gotta do is put a cricket in her back pocket and she'll be done". Hahahahahaahaha
The cricket. One day, high-school age, I was taking a bath. With lots of bubbles, I'm doing real nice. All of a sudden, I see a black leg come out of the drainer...then the rest of it - a cricket. I flew out that bathtub, ran out the bathroom, buck naked, with the exception of the bubbles on me. Hahahahahahah. Of course, whoever was home just cracked up.
Hahahaahahaaha, it's funny how the mind can take us places. Just thought I'd share. Maybe You'll get a laugh too
