Austin is still weird…

I know I’ve mentioned before that Austin is weird. Well, that hasn’t changed at all. In fact, I was reminded of it yesterday when I was in traffic court with the Girl. I was there for moral support, because honestly? I don’t recall anyone ever winning in traffic court. You have a better chance of winning the lottery, if you ask me, which you didn’t.

So waiting in the lobby there at the traffic court, this lady walks in, gets her number and is all ready to fight her ticket. You can tell she has come prepared because she has her folder, her ticket and her daisy dukes. It appears that she wore the outfit that usually gets her out of tickets, except this last time when she must have been pulled over by a woman officer.

That’s right, she wore her lucky denim daisy dukes to court. These shorts were so short, they didn’t even cover the pockets in the front or the orbs of her butt in the back. Of course, she accessorized her outfit to accentuate the daisy dukes by wearing her pole dancer platform heels. She did take into consideration that she would be in a court of law and wore a white blouse with a fitted black jacket. One should always look their best when going to court.

We didn’t stick around to see if she won her case. Besides, I didn’t want the Girl to think that was any kind of defense strategy. Which might have been the case for a girl of a certain age, but most definitely is not the case for the woman of that age. Which was, without a doubt, way old enough to know better.


  1. Damn, that's what I was going to wear today to testify in my murder trial. You say no? Fine. I'll wear my hot pants instead.

  2. That is to funny.
    I remember a guy I worked with one time got arrested for having some pot in his car. He cleaned up real good, he cut all of his hair off, shaved and got a new suit for court. We had to laugh and laugh when he came back to work and told us that the Judge was blind! True story :)

  3. How do you know it was a traffic ticket?

  4. I've had to go to court a couple of times for work related stuff and I'm with you on the outfits. Holy crap. There was a woman who wore a decent lenght skirt, a button down top and stripper shoes. No joke, four inch heels with the clear platform. Hilarious.

    It's always nice when poeple like to share the butt cheeks with the world

  5. I am glad it's not me. I think wearing shorts of any kind to court should be considered grounds for something. Throw them in Common Sense lock-up maybe?

  6. Like John Wayne used to say - "Life is hard; it's harder if you're stupid."

  7. For some reason, "the orbs of her butt" is cracking me up. Hi, I'm ten.


I would love to hear what you have to say!
