I fought the law and...

Well, I didn't exactly fight the law, unless you consider forgetting to renew that sticker that goes on your license plate an act of aggression. Passive aggressive, maybe...

Last week was a bad week. I had an encounter with the Law that left me a trifle shaken - but thank god/dess, no poorer. The cop said he was in a good mood. A few days later, still wracking my brains because I could have sworn I did go in and get that sticker thingy, in fact, I had a distinct memory of going in to the office in Carleton Place in July (before my birthday, please note) to do so, I suddenly remembered the rest of the distinct memory, which was that because I had outstanding parking tickets in the City of Ottawa, which I could not pay from the Town of Carleton Place office, I did not end up renewing the registration that day.

So the moral of the story is - renew your registration, get your sticker, and if you don't have the right sticker on your license plate, don't drive around in front of cop cars, especially not if you are wearing a black skull cap. With a skull on it. And especially not if you have a large man in the passenger seat beside you who looks like a gangsta' in certain lights. (He's not a gangsta', he's the sweetest possible guy.) What can I say? I like to accessorize.

That is an excellent moral to pass along.

Yes, and from your picture David, I can see that you, too, like to accessorize!
