how\'s this for a monday...
read this and tell me its not a piss-poor day....it gets good at the end
well first day of classes at michigan state university..not all bad. school is school. i went to go get my books. all of my courses require at least three books. 18credit hours worth of books just cost me 650 dollars...hell thats a pretty decent set of tires that i need badly...you'll see why later
at a party i went to over the weekend some freshamn chick kissed me....my woman was furious. i mean i didn;t ask for it. i just had an extra beer in my hand and she wanted it. i left that party and went to dekes frat...then had a hell of a good time....i did the right thing and told my girlfriend about it the very next morning...she was upset..didn;t want to see me anymore...blah blah blah. i went to see her tonight. she has early class in the am so i wanted to get there fast so i could catch her before she went to bed.
well i met a new buddy while driving down there. he wore a nice blue uniform and a pretty badge too. he gave me a souvenir. offense code8062 civil infraction speeding. he got me for 92 in a 70. kinda sucks eh? oh well i was speeding...certainly not that fast, but oh well. he saw my truck with all the MSU decals and such and asked my major. i told him mechanical engineering...true...and a minor in criminal justice...not so true. he asked who my prof was and i gave him my fathers name as a primary teacher ever since i was a kid and then the name of some other CJ prof at school. turns out this dude had my dad for a prof back when he was going to state. let me off with 75in70...no points..just a fine. only good thing all day.
got to womans place. [censored] hit the fan....flew very far...i told her to just do what she neded to do so she hugged me and said everything was alright..basically.
while there it hammered down rain.lightning..power outage..the whole shot. truck windows were open..i forgot. man were my seats soaked. got to ride home in wet seats...i hate wet seats

ever seen a set of bowling pins bounce around and smash into each other? i saw it at highway speeds. 6 vehicles were ahead of me about 1/4 miles. i saw lights spinning around and spreading so i slowed down, but not enough. there was a 4" deep puddle across bother lanes where a depression in the road was. everyoine hydroplaned and skidded around. i skidded too and got a lil sideways...so i did the best thing i could think of. i dropped it down a gear and floored it. wheels moved enough water to get traction and the detroit locker (thank god i had it) kicked in....pushed me straight ahead instead of spinning me. i stopped and grabbed a few flare packs from the tool box. as i was running back to check the other people i droped a few and then headed up the road and marked the danger for others. everyone turned out to be okay. one lady in a lil honda had neck pain, but other than that all was alright. a ford ranger, an s-10 and a chevy halfton were off in the ditch. i pulled the trio of them out with my bowtie and they were thankful. offered me money, but i refused. just glad i could help. one dude called the police so they came and slowed traffic to avoid similar incident.
its coo lto pull out three vehicles in 10 minutes. i love pulling peeps out. moral of the story is....the speed limit is a limit..doesn;t mean you have to go that fast...faster and you get a ticket....slower might notbe slow enough. all of them recieved citations for driving too fast for conditions. the same officer that got me earlier was on scene and thanked me for helping and warning the other drivers. he said he wished he still had my ticket with him he'd just discard it, but he had already dropped it off at the station when he refueled. oh well. just the way it goes.
sorry for the frickin novel, but i'm bored and wanted to vent a bit.
