What Not To Wear - Traffic Court Edition

If you ever find yourself in a position to go to traffic court and you think you might want to convince the prosecutor and/or the judge for a good deal, I'm going to give you a little bit of inside advice. Don't wear the following items:
  • Black satin tapered leg pants with a bright orange cotton tank top (that I'm pretty sure I saw on the floor of WalMart recently)
  • Ratty t-shirt and cut-off jeans. Oh, and did I mention that the t-shirt had a picture of a giant hand flipping the bird on the front? Classy.
  • Transparent, gauzy black fabricky shirt (likely also from WalMart) cut so low I had to consciously avert my eyes. To avoid not only the ridiculous cleavage, but also the ginormous tattoo (heart with thorny roses, as if you needed to ask) that appeared to completely cover the left breast.

Three words: guilty, guilty, and guilty.

In other news, it's about 90 degrees, the sun is shining and it's T-minus 1 1/2 hours until golf league time. Anyone want to place bets on whether I will (1) drink too much and fall on my face again; (2) along with Erin, earn enough points to clinch our first place position; and (3) drink too much and laugh my fool head off?

Oh, and because this is a running blog, I ran 6 awesome miles last night. Perfect. I'm trying to ignore the forecast for Saturday (90+ degrees and humid). Half marathon? How about march of death.

So obviously it's not going to be 90 degrees at race start, which means you'll just have to run fast to beat the heat! Now if that's not motivation, I got nothing.

I agree with Jamoosh, run fast to beat the heat. Interesting crowd you get to hang with at court.

Way to go on the awesome 6!!

So you mean a judge won't appreciate someone wearing a shirt with a hand flipping the bird....weird! People are crazy.

How about running clothes to traffic court? Does it say "athlete" or does it say "I have nothing else to wear"?

The stuff you see must be hilarious!

At court once, the judge threw a girl out because she showed up in her bathing suit. Not kidding.
