Do people ever break in to jail?
Well, I suppose there’s a first time for everything.
Most days, I drive by the local police station.
Some days, I’m tempted to turn myself in.
For a crime I haven’t even committed.
After being imprisoned in a vehicle with two brawling beasts for a matter of mere minutes…
Let’s just say a much-needed break is in order.
A vacation, if you will.
With free room and board.
And even a complimentary library.
What’s not to like?
Sure, prison food might leave a bit to be desired.
But at least I wouldn’t have to do the cooking.
I’d say that probably qualifies as an acceptable trade-off.
And yes, amenities may be lacking.
But just think:
A break from never-ending heaps of laundry!
And from vacuuming and mopping!
And from stepping on Legos dangerously scattered across every inch of floor!
Oh, and what’s this I hear about free healthcare?
Just give me a couple of books, and a notebook and a pen, and I’ll be good to go.
But first, I need a plausible excuse.
People do get arrested for not wearing a seat belt.
And sometimes for using profanity in public places.
I even had a teacher in high school who managed to get thrown in jail for jaywalking.
Or what about twerking in public?
Surely, that could land a bit of time away from it all?
Some states have really bizarre laws that could earn some time in the slammer.
Did you know it’s illegal to drive blindfolded in Alabama?
(I don’t know why anyone would, but okay…)
And in Iowa, you simply can’t throw a brick onto a highway.
(Good luck pulling that one off.)
And in Missouri, bear wrestling is banned.
(Now we’re talking!)
And North Carolina heavily frowns upon Drunk Bingo.
(Woo hoo! Sounds like a good time!)
Oh, but there are no beaches in jail.
So maybe that’s not quite the right place for me.
Come to think of it, what I truly need is a relaxing trip to the beach…
~Happy Friday, friends! Hope you enjoy a bit of a break this weekend!~
