Just one slick move

The heightened heartbeat occured for a few seconds. Much less than it was previously when the adrenaline hit and the heart races to what feels like 180 beats per minute. But this time, as soon as I stopped my car, so did the adrenaline rush. He came over with a smile. I immediately knew that this was going to be an easy one.

But it shouldn't have been the case. Yet, understanding the system and going with the flow seems to be the most natural thing I can do. It has become instinct for me.

'Did you know that was a red light you just ran?'

'Oh? I didn't notice that. I assumed that I could turn since the other side was turning as well, therefore I thought that it would be safe to negotiate this turn'

'License and registration please'

And then I was on my way again.

Just one slick move to maintain a record free profile.

Yeah, I sound like a regular crook. That's why I'm growing a beard.
