I Can't Drive 55

What's the best way to get out of a speeding ticket? Cough on your license? Plead "insanity?" nope! ApologetiX!
Just got this funny email from fan (and friend) Julie.
You guys got me into so much trouble tonight...
[My seven year old daughter] Hannah & I were coming back from [our] guitar lessons and we had on "Adam Up". So, "Should I Pray or Should I Go" comes on. Like the good little "Class of '85" gal that I am, I am rockin' proper.
Then I notice there are flashing lights in the rear view mirror.
The nice police officer let me go with a warning. And I am quite sure it was because I said:
"I'm sorry, sir. But you see, ApologetiX were on."
Now Hannah will be sure I don't forget to put it on cruise B-E-F-O-R-E I start rockin.
Of course I do live under Murphy's law: I get flipped off, honked at, passed on double yellow lines because I do the speed limit. I go down-hill and once don't look and >>BAM<< I get nailed. ;)
As much as we love the visions of "Wayne's World" of them rockin' out to our music, we're glad that worked out that way. Maybe God sent that cop to spare the lives of both of them! Hannah is the little dreamboat in many of our photos with the "Karl's Biggest Fan" shirt.
Seat belts, everybody ;)
