i got pulled over again by a cop while biking last night! fortunately it was the same cop as last time, and he certainly remembered the sweaty white dude with the big grin and the abundance of hand gestures. he sent me on my merry way with a smile and an admonition to make sure that my light was on (it hadnt been).
unfortunately, im getting overconfident. i passed the cops again tonight, and i stopped just long enough to pull out my alien card and wave it at them from across the street. after that, i flashed a big thumbs up, yelled "konbanwa!!!" (good evening!!!) and took off on my bike without a look back.
in retrospect, its a damn good thing the cops didnt give chase!
