I mentioned during the last few days that my wife getting picked up by this lifeguard in a kayak is an example of what my son will describe as "playing the blonde card." Another example occurred occurred a month or so ago.
Julie was pulled over by a policeman for driving a little too fast in Scottsdale, Arizona. She told the officer that she did not notice her speed because she was distracted because she was admiring the pretty blue sky. Although in Arizona we have blue skies 89% of the daylight hours, the officer let her go without giving her a ticket.
Julie contends that being a blonde had nothing to do with the policeman letting her go and that she has been pulled over by police more often because of her blondness, but my son and I are not buying that contention for a minute.
Tomorrow I will show Julie thanking the lifeguard for his efforts in rescuing her.
