If your friend drives a white Jeep Liberty...

You might wanna go get her out of jail.I had an insane experience last night. Ran up to the Exxon for a Coke about 11.

Noticed a white Jeep Liberty with a flat/busted back driver's side tire and bent rim. The lady driving it came out. Tried to tell her about her flat. Realized she was absolutely wasted beyond wasted, carrying another 6-pack of Miller Lite. Yeah.

Tried repeatedly to show her that she had a flat, not even mentioning the dented front bumper and broken windshield. She reacted like I was the Wizard of Oz and she was...ToTo. Seriously. She was hopped up on pills and booze or something. Spacey. Uncommunicative. She ignored my warning and peeled out.

By the time I came out, cops were swarming and I flagged one down to ask if they were looking for her. They were. My husband said she drove up and down our street and through Charleston South screeching that rim on the pavement. Anyway, she was arrested at WT's Phillip's 66 on 231 S. (Long brown hair, age 23 to 34-ish, white Jeep Liberty with broken windshield, trashed front bumper, one jacked up rim.)

Only me, people.

Only me.

Miles loves school

Miles may be able to start kindergarten this year! We will have to wait and see, but the school board is letting her take the spectrum test to see if she is gifted. If so, she will be allowed to start. If she isn't gifted, I won't be disappointed; she's still definitely smarter than many her age. They told me that she is the top of her class in writing and interest in reading/spelling at her little MDO program. I will be disappointed that she can't start school, since I know she is as ready as any child born 12 days before her. (She missed the birthday cut off by 12 days.) It is just a shame that she has to show that she is smarter than all the normally smart kids, i.e. gifted, to be able to start with them. She has to pass intentionally and noticeably harder test because of 12 days.
