Dear Snoop D-O-Double G,
I want to hereby thank you for preparing me with the knowledge of knowing what to do in situations that involve the 5-0 (aka the cops). You see, the other day I took ride to CVS to pick up a prescription for my husband. After completing my purchase, I exited the store, got into my car, and proceeded to pull out of my parking spot. However, as I was doing so, I glanced down at the prescription I had just bought, and started second-guessing whether I had picked up the right one. So, what does any good wife do? She texts her hubby to make sure, of course! As I was texting, though, a police car suddenly pulled up beside me, and I started to freak. I’m no dummy; I know it’s against the law to be texting and driving, but the thing was, I wasn’t technically driving, so I wasn’t sure what to do.
Snoop Dogg, just like an angel from above, I heard your voice say to me, “When the pigs try to get at ya- Park it like it’s hot/ Park it like it’s hot/ Park it like it’s hot,” and I calmly pulled back into my parking spot and turned the ignition off.
And can I just tell you, Snoop Dogg, you were so right. The police officers looked into my car at me, and I was like, “What?” because I knew there was nothing they could do about it. I was in a parked vehicle, and I wasn’t breaking the law.
So, I just wanted to say thank you for indirectly providing me with the tools I needed on that fateful day, because to be completely honest with you, I had no idea that a song I listened to on repeat in my beaten down Ford Tempo back in 2004, would be so influential on my life.
So, thank you, Snoop Dogg.
