Tip of the day:
If you’re going much further south than San Antonio, you might want to reconsider driving a white 15 passenger van with darkly tinted windows. Hubby and I were joking about this when we headed down a few days ago, but nothing exciting happened. Obviously a suspicious van heading south is not a target for INS.
Heading north, however, is a different story. Today on the way back home we got to live our joke.
An INS truck passed us going the other way on the highway and immediately hit the brakes. A minute later they were right on our tail. Hubby and I debated whether the stop would be worth the priceless memories and the inevitable blog post but we didn’t have long to think about it before we saw lights flashing. I think we were both secretly elated.
I fought the urge to hide our two darkest daughters while hubby fought the urge to greet the man with, “Hola, senor. Que pasa?” We answered several questions for the humorless man and when he was satisfied that we knew where we had been and where we were going and that yes, we were all one family, he sent us on our way.
And for the record, yes. It was worth the post.
