I have great respect for members of law enforcement.
Especially the ONE who stopped me the other day.
When I was running late.
And in a hurry.
Who then handed me a ticket for speeding.
Which made me even later.
Officer C-------, this is for you.
I'm sure our streets are safer now because you stopped a woman with a dog - who didn't even bark at you, by the way.
I didn't tell you I often write about people like you.
And I gave you an A+ for procedure.
I'm sure I looked extremely dangerous.
I know. Looks can be deceiving.
Would you have stopped me if I didn't drive a sporty little red car?
My dog didn't even bark at you. And still you wrote me up.
Didn't your mother teach you about appreciation?
I know. You were doing your job.
Just remember. I'm a writer. A mystery and romantic suspense writer. The next time I kill a cop, I'll be thinking of you.
On paper. On paper. On paper!
Yes, I know you have my address.
Bad. I should just shut up.
