…the word police!
Exciting, no? Don’t worry it’s not all bad.
This weekend I went to visit my brother who lives in Charlotte. My parents also came down and my brother’s girlfriend was also there, so it was a good weekend.
The weekend started off with the cops. The reason being construction and lots of it. Pretty much every road I had to take to Charlotte was under construction thus many, many cops were present.
When we got to Charlotte and were headed to dinner at Harvest Moon Grille, guess what? More cops!
Homeland is filmed in Charlotte and we think that’s what we were seeing. It was a convoy of about 10 cop cars, a stretch Escalade, and a stretch limo.
As we were eating dinner a couple of cop cars would speed around the corner, lights and sirens blazing, then just stop. Hoping it was just for a scene…
Here’s the kicker.
On Saturday night, we were just sitting down to eat at Andrew’s house. We then heard a loud thud, thud. Andrew immediately went to my parents car to take a look. A girl while talking on her phone and possibly drunk hit my parents car. Awesome. She hit the car with such force that it did something to the rear and front axle making the car undriveable. Even better! Guess what this equation equals…more cops!
Luckily my brother’s neighbors were coming home after a walk, saw pretty much the whole accident, and had the license plate number. A cop came and took a statement and said they were going to cite the girl with leaving the scene of a crime.
So there, see? Totally brought to you by the word police.
The rest of the weekend was great and did not involve police of any kind.
Look! I have photographic proof!
Wait that’s a lie. When we took a walk to look at this monument and Vietnam War Wall, we saw a guy getting arrested…
Okay, other pictures!
Andrew took us to the Triple C Brewing Company and we had a beer sampler. Good beers and a really cool place!
That box of goodies is from Sweet Lorraine’s Bakery in Charlotte. I tried the peanut butter and jelly cookie and the Sweet Lorraine (the one that looks like a giant chocolate chip cookie) and both were delicious!
