Funny Story

Post  gman on Thu Jan 10, 2013 7:28 pm

Well at least the members of our small bonsai club monthly meeting (last night) thought it amusing….and laughed at my happenstance….
I was driving home from our December bonsai club meeting (around 9:30pm on a Wednesday night) and my project tree (mountain hemi) was riding shotgun (passenger seat of the highlander). As I turned onto the second to last street to my home, there was a police roadblock - checking for drinking and driving.
Officer; “Good evening sir, have you been drinking?”
Me; “only tea officer”
Officer; “Can I see your drivers license”
Me; “sure”
As I handed him my license he shone his flashlight into the vehicle…first to the passenger floor where my bonsai tool kit was.... then up to the large Hemlock and as I looked up at him he smiled the weirdest smile/ chuckled and asked,
“Taking your tree for a drive?......... to see Xmas lights?”
I’m glad it was dark as I’m sure my face was as red as a tomato……”it’s a bonsai” I sputtered ….fumbling for a good retort…..the officer smiled, gave me my license back and said “ have a good night”.
You have to laugh at life sometimes....
Cheers Graham
