    I Asked the Judge for Jail Time for a Speeding Ticket

    March 20, 2015


    I got a speeding ticket a few years ago, and had no money to pay for it. So I asked the judge for jail time instead. Besides, I wanted to see what prison life was like–from the inside. I figured two or three days behind bars was a small price to pay to relate to inmates. If nothing else, it would make for a good story. And we writers, you know we love us some good stories.

    But an attorney called me aside and talked some sense into my head–I didn’t need a permanent record of incarceration behind my name. So I still have never had the chance to go to jail.

    The following honest post (click the link below!) is a reminder that I keep myself in a different kind of prison sometimes. I allow things much smaller than a speeding infraction to lock me up in a cell of resentment–ungracious words, unkind actions by “hurting people”…. Thanks, Leslie, for reminding me that hold the key to my own freedom.
