Just a warning

I had to post this story, especially since I sure ain't running and have nothing to report there!

So my ill 8-year-old and I are heading back home yesterday after dropping off the 4 year-old at preschool. It was 11:30am and I was tooling down a county road in my Jeep Cherokee, with Jackson in the back seat playing Mario Brothers on his Nintendo DS. As I am approaching town, I notice a car a 1/2 block up the road from me slowing down, and then I see why. A cop right out in plain view on a side street. I gradually slow down about from about 55 to 45 mph and a few seconds later pass by the patrol car. Here he comes. Right up behind me and on come the lights. Let me pause for a moment here and brag that after driving for 18 years I have never gotten a speeding ticket. I pull into the next possible side drive, which happens to be a cemetery. He explains that I was in a 30 mph zone and was exceeding that posted speed limit. As he was running my info, Jackson nervously says "Dad, are you going to jail?". The officer comes back in 2-3 minutes and handed me my warning. Actually very nice about it. He thanks me for wearing my seat belt and encouraged me to have a nice day. So here's the best part....yeah better than the warning. As we are getting back on the road:

Me: Man, Jackson....I dodged a bullet there.
Jackson: (in a shocked and serious tone) You mean he SHOT at you?
