My day in court…

Black Italian Double-breasted suit: $0 (Hand-me-down)
New Haircut: $0 (Didn’t have time)
Leaving your dogs alone in the State of Pennsylvania: $2,250.00

“Your honor, it was a time of tough decisions. A time to walk, hitchhike, and make it to work everyday by any means necessary. What happened was unfortunate, and I offer no excuses.”

That line impressed the hell out of the Magistrate, who I have to say was one of the fairest and kindest judges I’ve ever met. At certain points of the informal trial, I envisioned the outcome a thousand times worse than a mere fine.

“It’s actually refreshing to have someone take responsibility and not offer excuses for what they’ve done…”

A husband and wife was in a similar situation in that same court yesterday.

They are now spending the next three months in Pike County Correctional Facility.

I consider myself lucky.
