Speeding through Litchfield

Dear 27,
Litchfield Minnesota police lady. You saved my day. I know I was speeding, on my cell phone, completely disoriented and a little lost. You should have ticketed me in my rental car. You should have had little to no sympathy for my shaking hands. And yes, I'd never been pulled over, ever. And yes, you were obviously not 27 nor writing a love letter to your year, but police lady in Litchfield Minnesota, there is a special wonderful place for people like you. Odes are written to people like you. Songs are sung, birds rest on your forearms in glee, portraits hang in halls of you.
Thank you. For not ticketing me.
