Take Care Of Her, OK?

The last post got a little too serious. I need to live up to my reputation and make my readers laugh.
This one's on special request by Veens :)

So, most of you have already seen my beautiful Dhanno. This story is about her, and how she got me out of trouble, just by being herself!
If you haven't met her, go to this post: http://anerimasissoapbox.blogspot.com/2008/03/my-beautiful-baby.html and come back here!

It was one of those busy days at work where nothing really seems to go right (hmmm...that sounds more like EVERYDAY!) I got off from work, had to do a bit of shopping at the Walmart. So set off in its direction. Here's what the road looked like:



I needed to turn on Road B, but instead turned on Road A. I realized it as soon as I got on A. Ok, no problem, I can turn right back and be on my way. The signal was red at intersection C. So I stopped, noticed the "No U-Turn" sign and made a mental note. NO U-TURN. So I was waiting for the light to turn green, and chanting, no u-turn, no u-turn, no u-turn. Light turns green. I instinctively take a U-turn!

Shit!

Not just shit, Holy crap, as well! There's a cop at the intersection, right by the entrance to the gas station. I am kind of in the middle of the road, cop looks at me, I look at him. I haven't yet completed the turn, and am wondering whether I can change this u-turn into a left-turn. I try, and OH BOY, looks like I am heading straight for the cop! Cop looks totally terrified. I stop, let everyone else clear out of my way, move out of the intersection and go stop on the side. The scared cop is right beside me with a very genuine question:

C(op): Where did you want to go?

M(e): Umm..to the gas station, I was taking a left turn, I saw you, got scared and then confused, and then, you know (***now that is brilliant, girl, blame it aaaaall on him***)
Its your fault! (***Yep, I actually said that to him, don't ask me what I was thinking, coz, well, I guess I was NOT thinking!)

C: Ummm..ok (***maybe he does get blamed a lot, who knows!***). You know, you should be more careful. This is a busy intersection, you could get into an accident (***awww...the cute cop cares about me***).
You have a really nice car here, you could damage it you know! (***WHAT! Cute cop cares about Dhanno, not me***)

Well, that kind of pissed me off, I mean, how can he care more about a car than a person, right?
In the meantime, another cute cop has joined him, and they're both silently admiring Dhanno,even whispering something about her to each other.
So what do y'all think I told him?

M: What? You care about the car, and not me? I mean I could get hurt in the accident, and lose a leg or something? The car can get fixed, what about me if I get hurt?

C: Ummm..yeah, that too. But you know, take care of her, ok?


Better sense prevailed, and I did not argue with him. He booked me for a very minimal offense, circled around Dhanno once more, and let me go.

How can I not love my baby? After all, "the law" asked me to take care of her :o>

NOTE: Comments about "women drivers" will not be published, so don't waste your time posting any!

hahaha - now this is back to ol' aneri :)

yeah I always wonder - am a fast driver - and here on the highway (its not free here :( like CA) guys with mercs and bimmers zip past and I look at the speedometer - and go WTF they are all close to 90-95 mph - do they have prepaid fines or coupons that they buy :P...but now I know the secret....dhanno ki jai

Neeku said...

Dhanno ekdum smart che! I think she fluttered eyelashes in front of the cops .... so that they can get smitten by her...

Arre wah :)

aneri_masi said...

@CG, yep, cops were SO cute! And we don't say y'all here in CA, its something I picked up at school in India!

@samby, yes yes, sambhal ke rakhi hai tere liye ;)

@veens, arey, i don't think he heard anything I said, he was just staring at dhanno!

@ekta, yep, dhanno's rocking!

@ella, arey nahi yaar, cute cop tha. ticket bhi kam kar dee.

@mez, nah, this was a one-time event. I am usually a very safe and boring driver.

@ceedy, nothing free here in CA either. Limits are about 65mph on the freeway, and 40 in the city. But yeah, having a nice car helps! My husband got cited for driving at 75 while he was actually doing 95+. He said dhanno fast jaati hai, main kya karoo, cop said, yeah, true, these cars are like that!

@neeku, egjactly :)

Pavi!!!! said...

Hahahaha..some memorable times huh ;-)

carolinagal said...

You picked up 'y'all' in India?? I never knew people in India said that.
You know its a Southern thing here right?

aneri_masi said...

@cg, yeah, I know its a totally southern thing here. One of my teachers in India used to use it all the time. Got it from her.
