Cops and Me

Yesterday I was taking a nap in a parking lot, in my van of course.  it’s been great sleeping weather here lately and the afternoon breeze feels good coming through my windows.  I suddenly heard a cop siren.  It was really close and it wasn’t a long wail like when they are coming down the street after someone.  It was a burr boerp sound that they do when they just want to let you know they are there, I guess.  I thought wow, someone must have called the cops on me.

I had my excuses all made, I had a book that I’ve been reading lying next to me.  I was going to say I was between jobs and just reading a bit and fell asleep.   BUT the cop never came and rapped on my window, like i thought he would.  He or she was probably pulling someone over for a ticket and pulled into the parking lot.

I’m so paranoid sometimes!

    It’s good that you had an excuse ready. Most of the time, in that situation, the cop will actually want to sneak up on you. Usually from behind or the passenger side window. They won’t light up the gumballs. They always seek the advantage, the element of surprise.
