And where did you spend Thanksgiving?
I hope my friends in the blogosphere had a great Thanksgiving. All the turkey they could eat and friends and family around them. I had planned to do the same. The turkey was stuffed and in the oven (a drunken turkey marinated in primo tequila and Grand Marnier, no less), ready to make the mash potatoes and cream of pumpkin soup. I had a crowd of about twenty people arriving at 5pm to celebrate.
Then I got arrested. For disciplining the TeenQueen.
I spent the night in jail.
You can't even spank your kid anymore without fear of becoming a convict. Well, there goes my boast of never being arrested.
I found out I'm tougher than I thought I was.
And if I had to do it over again, I would DO IT IN A HEARTBEAT......only this time I'd probably give her a couple of more licks!
Everyone in jail was very nice to me.....very understanding of my situation. Even got to room with a nice tourist who DUI'd. It could have been a lot worse.
I'll certainly be nicer to my inmate prisoners now-but then I've usually treated them well unless they act like idiots.
The convict jokes are flying around here.....but EVERYONE has been incredibly supportive.
And the TeenQueen? In a locked juvenile shelter "for her protection." Sheesh.....no cell phone, no computer access, contact list restricted (by ME) and she can't even pee without company. It had to come to this? Yes. If I'm so horrible, you're in paradise, babygirl.
