Annie Parsons: Ex-Con


Although I watched the opening ceremonies of the Olympics last week, I have yet to watch an actual Olympic.  However, I must say that I’m liking Shaun White these days.  I don’t know why – I never paid him any attention before.  But isn’t he so likable?  His big smile and happy heart?

Don’t you think Shaun White has a happy heart?  He seems like it.

You know who DOESN’T have a happy heart today?  Yours truly.  The DMV is officially the thorn in my side, the hitch in my get-up.  After basically being accused of being a criminal and driving a stolen vehicle, they refused to issue me Colorado license plates.  I now have no choice but to make an appointment with a little organization called the COLORADO STATE PATROL to clear my name.

It’s practically the Salem Witch Trials.

Except, come to think of it, not really the same at all.

    The DMV has been a thorn in our side, too. I won’t bore you with the details, but I will commiserate with you!

    (Please don’t end up in jail.)

    So let me get this straight. They accused you of being a criminal and driving a stolen car, and they didn’t try to arrest you?

    Oh well, the DMV is not known as a place where you get to interact with the state’s best, brightest and kindest.

    What a pain in the butt. I’m an olympic junkie…well for everything except for figure skating. As a runner you would’ve appreciated the cross country skiing. Talk about thigh burn. I think that might be the only thing more taxing than running.

    White does have an awesome nickname – “The Flying Tomato”

    The same thing happened to me in Missouri. I have an appointment for March 9th. I scheduled it about two weeks.

    So, hopefully they won’t find me guilty.

    I hadn’t even read your blog yet and I wrote about Shaun White today too! :) He is darling and his hair is phenomenal.

    You should watch him do his thing tonight, might help you forget about the DMV…

    I suddenly have “Witchy Woman” stuck in my head…

    That is something that would happen to me–I feel your pain!
