the benefits of paying attention

I got a ticket. My first ticket in 7 years for... running a red light. Don't think that the light was yellow or anything, no, I was stopped and the arrow light went green and I decided I should go. And then realized the light was red. M says, "Shit here comes a cop." So I got a $75 ticket. But I wasn't speeding and I had my insurance card, so it could have been worse. I feel stupid.

I still have a headache. M says, "You shouldn't drive with a headache."

I agree.

but I'm still out 75 bucks.
