Since we still only have one road worthy vehicle, I usually drive Mike to work so I can use the car during the day. Or rather, I'm the bleary absolutely-not-a-morning-person riding as the passenger until we get to his office.
Anyway, on our drive yesterday morning, there came a faint buzz and then a chirping from my back pocket. It took him a second but Mike looked at me.
"Was that you?"
"Yeah," I said. "It was my iPhone reminding me about court tomorrow." My hit (twice) and run driver was changing his plea and I wanted to watch.
Mike nodded. "....and in today's legal news, traffic court proceedings were continuously disrupted by a small, angry woman who kept leaping to her feet and yelling, 'Off with his head!"*
I smiled wryly. "I am so blogging that."
(I'll let you know how it goes.)
