Breakin’ the law, breakin’ the law . . .
We’ve all done it one way or another (unless you’re a total saint).
As for me, I know
I’ve broken the law a time or two . . . usually in fairly harmless ways, though, like stealing construction cones or arranging deer lawn ornaments folks put out around the holidays into “inappropriate” positions. At that time, I knew I was doing something wrong, and that’s exactly why I did it: for the thrill! But there was a time when I had no concept of what “breaking a law” was . . . back in the ’90s . . .
When I was about 7, I hopped into the driver’s seat and took a “spin” in my mom’s Cadillac Eldorado while she went into a gas station mart. At first I was just playing: twisting the wheel and flicking knobs and buttons. Then I got down to business. I pushed the brake, kicked it into reverse and away me and my younger sister went; backed right into the chain-link fence separating the gas station parking lot and someone’s front yard. Offenses: driving without a license and damaging private property. Bad, bad, bad “baby.”
