The Secret On How To Successfully Beat A Red-Light Camera Ticket

Last year I received a letter in the mail from the Washington D.C DMV claiming I was speeding. As you can see it was one of those Photo-Enforced Speeding Tickets and they had multiple pictures of my CAR.

40 WEIRD THINGS THAT HAPPEN WHEN YOUR BOYFRIEND IS YOUR BEST FRIEND

Written By: Lexi Herrick 1. He see’s you in true form. There’s right before bed, zit cream and all. There’s drunk you with eye liner smeared on your face and nacho cheese in your hair. There are a lot of you’s he has endured. It’s actually laughable how bad you have looked around him and how little you care. 2. You’ve become so comfortable with each other that embarrassment is no longer a factor. 3. You have each other’s outfit ensembles nearly memorized. “I’m wearing the maroon shirt” “With the tan shorts and brown watch?” “Yup.” 4.

Your families are way too comfortable around you both at this point and absolutely nothing gets held back. 6. You become obsessed with certain restaurants and foods for different periods of time.
