Lent Day Thirty-Six
Wednesday, April 9, 2014 – Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet eating her curds and whey; along came four All American Huskies and blew her and the Irish away. By twenty points they blew them away. Ouch. I did not see a duo of national champions, but UConn never tell what will happen. Groan. So we say good-by to basketball until next year, but not without congrats to Odyssey Sims from Baylor for winning the Wade Trophy, the equivalent of the Heisman for outstanding basketball player. Now on to one of the funniest stories I have read in a long time. Maybe forever. In the deep East Texas town of Lufkin, 37 year old Evelyn Hamilton called the Lufkin police with a complaint. It seems the quality of the marijuana she purchased was substandard and the drug dealer, Nancy Botwin, would not return her money. Ms. Hamilton complained that for $40 she received just seeds and residue. When the police arrived at her door, they asked if she still had it. Pulling a small amount of marijuana from her bra, she was immediately arrested on the charge of drug possession and paraphernalia. This product of the public education system must brush up on her geography while she serves time. Our state, Texas, is not one of the square ones west of us. It is not Colorado, nor is it Washington. It is Lufkin, Texas. It is not even Austin where our local marijuana laws are posted for out of towners visiting the city. So good luck with your sentence and substance abuse programs, Ms. Hamilton. Perhaps next time, you should “phone a friend” regarding substandard substances. Furthermore, what were you expecting for $40?
