speed demon

A colleague and I went down to Denver on Friday for a roundtable discussion with some academic librarians from other schools in the region. I drove us in a university car and we left insanely early in the morning. Right before we got to Cheyenne, I got pulled over. The trooper gave me a fun ticket in the amount of $180. Nice. He claims I was going 94 in a 75, but I'm skeptical. I was definitely going 85, but I never hit 90. What can you do, though? So, I guess I'm spending my clothing budget on a speeding ticket. I'll have to wear too-big pants for a while longer.

Hey, too-big pants is a better problem than too-small!

Too bad you can't get the uni to pay for the ticket since it was work travel...

94..whatevs.

If you have to wear too-big pants for a while longer, well, think how much smaller you'll appear a few weeks from now when you've lost more and the pants are still the same size!

(And sorry to hear about the ticket.)
