A Sure Sign of Age

This morning an unmarked* St. Paul Police car was catching speeders on my street. He'd get 'em on radar, pull 'em over after a one-block nonpursuit, write 'em up and be back in his hiding spot in about 15 minutes.
There was a time when I got mad about cops 'hiding out' and writing tickets. Today, my first reaction was wanting to buy him a coffee and wish him "good hunting." That's because I'm of that adult age where I do not want to go back to being younger.
*that is if you are too preoccupied to notice a strategically-parked and idling bright red CVPI Crown Victoria with a rear deck lightbar and a full spread of electronic countermearsures.
