Okay. Get this.
I was driving to pick my buddy up at his new place the other day, and I found myself daydreaming as I was passing through a well-known speed trap. I’ve trained my eyes to catch cops by the side of the road, and this occasion was no different, hence my rapid deceleration. By the time, I looked at my speedometer, it was reading 53, 52, 51…
I was in a 45 MPH zone, and I knew I was going way faster than I should. I’ll pulled quickly onto the angled embankment between the bridge and the freeway entrance below it. My hands were displayed promptly empty out the window as the officer approached the passenger side.
I rolled the window down on that side and placed my hands on the steering wheel. He said,
This your ride?
I answered, “It’s mine.”
Can I see your license?
I answered, “I was waiting to get it safely.” It was then I dug out my wallet.
You were going 58 in a 45. How’s your driving record?
I told him it was good, even though it wasn’t long ago I was pulled over for something*.
Then I’ll take care of you.
I ended up getting an impeding traffic ticket which still costs $116, but… no points.
Ah, the part I’ve dreaded. I was daydreaming, listening to this song:
I was trying to figure out the line:
You made a rebel of a careless man’s careful daughter
Because this later line confused me:
I fell in love with a careless man’s careful daughter
I thought all the choruses went that way, but it was only the last one that “the boy” is singing to her.
Nonetheless, what makes this a Coinkydink Or Coinkydonk? is that (My Boss) Paul pointed out that the cadence (which also happens to be his daughter’s name) is Taylor Swift’s Mine is almost the same as The Wallflowers’ One Headlight:
*That something I was pulled over for… I only had one headlight.
