Really??? Really??

While I think Saturday Night Live isn't very funny very often, I love the segment during the Weekend News Update with Seth Meyer called "Really?"

So here is my version of that segment.

My doorbell rings at 2:00 in the afternoon today and I answer it to find a uniformed police officer standing there. Really?

My first thought was that someone died. Kind of scary really.

But she (the officer) quickly states that she is here to deliver a citation for our dog being off his leash at a local park.

Really???

I don't have a dog I replied.

"Well ma'am it is your yellow lab" the officer replied.

Really?

Because not only do I not have a dog, I definately don't have a yellow lab.

The officer replied, "But we traced the plates from your husband's black mercedes -- a Mr. Trent Handy -- to this address."

Really???

Because I not only don't have a dog, but we do not have a black mercedes.

She asked, "What kind of car does your husband drive?"

I replied a 99 Honda Civic, white.

She laughed.

Really????

She then asked if I would check our cars to make sure the plates were not stolen.

Really???

I checked the minivan. Both plates were there. I told her I would have trent check his car when he got home as it is parked at the train station right now.

I did state that I was willing to pay the citation if I got to keep the black mercedes. Really.

She laughed. Again.

Apparently here in my town, the cops don't have a lot going on. Home visits for dogs off their leash -- that is pretty serious stuff.

Really. Someone could have been licked.

Really.

That was hilarious! Mom and I were reading it and laughing out loud! Your town is definitely slow, remember when I got pulled over for having my headlight out!

Somebody probably stole your license plates with the evil idea of letting their dog loose without getting caught...obviously the most logical answer here!

so I had to come back and see if there was any update. Did Trent still have his license plates or were they MIA?
