All My Crimes Meme

If you saw me in the back of a police car, what would you think I was there for?

Answer me, and post this in your own journal to see how many crimes you get accused of.

Jay Lake infected me with this meme.  He was, naturally, accused of jay walking ... but not by me.  I didn't respond fast enough.  I had to come up with something else.

As a side note, as an April Fool's joke I toyed with the idea of calling up a friend of the family and have him bring me in during my DH's work shift.  I couldn't decide if I wanted to be booked for prostitution or murder.  Just telling my DH about my plan when he got home had more than enough of the desired effect.  The expression on his face was precious.  He pondered for quite a while about how he'd react to that.

1. You know they'd have called him down to booking.

2. You'd have to get a divorce, deputies aren't allowed to have a personal relationship with inmates.

3. I would get all the details because our office would have handled the grievance!

I think this is a win all around.

All I can say is, hee hee!

BTW, I think jail tours are more fun than ride-alongs, but I haven't been on a ride-along, so I'm prejudiced.

Let's see...I'd think you were there for (in this order):

1. Killing someone who was kind enough to pay your restaurant bill. (Irish husband. Yes, I still remember that.)

2. Aggravated assault against someone who was a bit too scathing in his literary criticism.

3. Dognapping. (Kudos to Melissa for thinking the same thing.) (But why is it that the word "catnapping" means something totally different? Stupid English language!)

4. Accidental subversion, i.e. something you wrote in one of your stories turned out to be a bit too similar, literally or metaphorically, to a government secret. (Don't laugh. There are historical examples of this.)

5. You twisted your ankle again, and the officer was kind enough to give you a ride.

6. A practical joke on your husband. (Hey, I ain't stupid!)

7. Witness protection.

8. Plabioco. (It's my word verification.)

Things that puzzle this other goddess.... said...

You don't dress enough like a hooker for it to be prostitution and the ones who look as good as you don't walk the streets from what I've been told, they connect via the internet. ;D So...let's see...hmmm I'd probably have to vote for following the school bus too closely while you were sleepy. ;)

My verification word is lespor. I'm almost afraid to ask what it might be. :)
