We’re driving home from school.
Jessica: There is a police car.
Me: Yes, I see it.
Jessica: I am just letting you know. I know you do not like to get stopped by the police.
Me: You’re kinda making me sound like an evil doer.
Jessica: Well, I have seen the police stop you.
Me: Once. In sixteen years.
Jessica: And you get all those tickets.
Me: For overstaying parking meters!
Jessica: I am just saying, look out for the police.
