LOL, this story is too ridiculous not to share on tPF! I decided to drive home (to NJ) yesterday for the weekend (I now live in VA). I packed up Darwin, my beagle who gets terribly car sick, and off we went. About an hour into the trip, I hear "Blergh!Blergh!Blergh!YAK!" and feel my lap get warm. Yep *he puked on my lap while driving* ew ew ew ew ew ew!!!!!!! I was so disgusted and busy trying to figure out what to do (stop to clean up, but that would mean changing into new pants, but my new pants would be full of vomit too since the seat was now covered in it) that I didn't notice how fast I was going. Yep, you guessed it. I got pulled over for speeding. The police officer approached my car and asked me what the hurry was. I said, "Sir, if you'll look down, you'll see I have a lap full of dog puke. If that isn't an excuse to speed a little, I don't know what is." Luckily, he started laughing and agreed that dog vomit on my lap was a valid excuse. He gave me directions to a rest stop and told me to slow down (which I did!). So, I got a lap full of vomit, which is bad, but it also got me out of a very expensive speeding ticket!!!! LOL, a hot shower when I got to my Mom's was the best thing in the world last night!!
