Today’s gadget is the Kodak PlayTouch digital Video Camera. I received this from Kodak a few months ago and have used it all over the place to make videos. It also takes great photos. I put the magnetic ring on the front of this camera as well so that I could use the magnetic lenses on it too. I’ll try out the wide angle on it tomorrow.
Today Eva started her next set of swimming lessons. We switched the time up so that I could take her after work on Thursdays. I’m excited to finally be the one who can take her to classes. I hear tales of her swimming prowess from Allison and want to see it first hand. Eva doesn’t really like male teachers and she decided not to get into the water right away for Mr. Corey. Luckily Mr. Corey was understanding and he did try to get Eva into the water. She refused but still sat on the edge of the pool. When the kids had the chance to jump into the water Eva was very excited. I knew that she wanted to go into the water. I got down next to her at the water’s edge and asked her if she wanted to get in. She did and then I asked if she wanted to jump in and not be caught by Mr. Corey. she said yes. So I explained it to Mr. Corey and Eva jumped in. She got out and did another jump. Mr. Corey was great. He worked one on one with Eva right after the class and she swam like a little fish. At the end of that session Mr. Corey gave her a challenge. He challenged her to swim with the other kids next week. She’s good with challenges and is excited about it.
After swimming we had a nice family meal at Dairy Queen. Eva is a big fan of ice cream and loves the cherry dipped cones. We had fun and a nice time. I left right after dinner and got a haircut over at Sorella Salon from my favorite stylist.
On the way home from the salon I passed a police car and then another police car. I went up around the bend and was about 3-5 mph over the speed limit. Suddenly the lights went on and I immediately pulled over. In that moment when you pull over till the officer walks up to the car feels like an eternity. I sat there waiting for the officer to come to my window. He did come to the window but not mine, the passenger side one. I was so thrown off that I put down the back passenger side window at first. I was unsure why I was pulled over, 3-5mph over the limit doesn’t seem worth being pulled over.
The officer asked me where I was coming from. I thought that was odd and was thrown for another loop. I had a hard time immediately getting out that I was coming from Sorella Salon. I told the officer that I had come from the salon after getting my haircut. The officer asked me if I had been in North Attleboro today or if I had just come from North Attleboro. Seeing as I live there then yes but I was in Plainville before being pulled over. He told me that a car matching my description was involved in an altercation and a person matching mine was too. What?
The officer took my license and ran my plates and then another officer came to my driver’s side window and asked me where I was coming from. I told her Sorella Salon. Another cruiser pulled up and two more officers questioned me as to where I had come from. This was between sitting there waiting to find out what was going on.
The whole time I could hear the police radio and pieced together what had gone on. Apparently there was a fight two streets over from where I live. The person who they were looking for probably had a knife on them. That person was also driving a car like mine and had a look like mine (which I found out later was a black coat, my coat was not black but has some black on it). Finally another cruiser came by slowly and the victim identified that I was not the person they were looking for. I was let go. It was so nerve-wracking.
Of course the whole time I wanted to tweet or post to Facebook about what was going on but I knew that’d be a bad idea. “Excuse me officer, let me just hit send…”
