“License and registration?” the cop burbled at me. He turned them over in his claws.
“Are you aware that you were going 60 in a school zone?”
“I’m sorry, officer,” I started, “I’m starting a new job today and this reef is unfamiliar.”
His eyestalks pointed in my direction. “Well Ma’am, I’d advise you to pay more attention from now on.”
I thanked him and drove away, a trail of bubbles in my wake.
