Excuse me officer?

So the other night I was running down Rich Lane. Rich Lane is a pretty busy street for Blackfoot, but like most of Blackfoot, it doesn't have any sidewalks. I noticed that there were flashing lights behind me and I laughed to myself thinking that I was glad I wasn't the one getting pulled over. (I've been pulled over 4 times by the same officer on Rich Lane and never ticketed ~ ya, I'm pushing my luck.) Anyway, the lights finally passed me and to my surprise, this big police truck pulled in front of me and came to a stop. I thought to myself, "this couldn't be for me...what would the officer say...'excuse me mam, you are simply just running too fast'!"

Well, sure enough, the officer pulled ME over, while I was running, to tell me that I needed to wear something other than black to run in. What? Me wear something other than black? Doesn't he know that black is my signature color...that it is slimming, and that I'd rather be hit by a car than wear any other color than black?

Apparently he couldn't see me...I still think the real reason is because I was running to fast...It's a bird...It's a plane...It's...
