Tootie Gets a Speeding Ticket – Not Necessarily The News
Tootie Landry shares her brush with the law in this edition of "Not Necessarily The News."
"Hey! I’m Tootie Landry and this is what I found out today! It’s happened to most of us…you know, you’re driving along minding your own business jamming to Adele and then it happens! Yep, I got pulled over by a motorcycle cop. It’s the siren, the lights, and that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach! Oh my God!
As I saw him approaching in my side view mirror, I began flipping through my excuse rolodex in my brain!
Knowing that a ticket was mostly likely inevitable, I was at least hoping it was Eric Estrada from “Chips!” No luck there!
Of course I’m thinking of all the excuses I can tell him! Like… my manager is going to be so mad at me for being late to work. After all, the movie “Horrible Bosses” was about him! Or the fact that I just had 16 glasses of ice tea at lunch and really needed to use the bathroom!
I was so embarrassed! I just knew my driver’s ed. teacher was going to pass by and honk!
Instead of Eric Estrada, it was an even bigger surprise! His nametag had “Landry” on it! So I jumped in with a big smile and asked, “Who’s your Daddy? Are you related to my Uncle Henry?” And in an icy tone with his mirrored sunglasses, he said in a deadpan voice, “Nope!”
And finally, as I drove off with my ticket in hand I thought, “What is my Gecko at Geico going to think about this?” And I’m Tootie Landry and this is “Not Necessarily the News!”
