Earlier in the week some friends and I were talking, and we were sharing all of the different things about ourselves that made us feel like the “black sheep” in our families. We each offered various examples of our “black sheep-ness” until one friend piped up with her contribution.
“Unless you’ve been arrested,” she told us, “unless you’ve seen prison, I win.”
That’s pretty funny! So, did she expand on the staement and tell you why she was arrested???

I don’t know whether to laugh or to cringe! Was there an uncomfortable silence, then cricket chirps following that little tidbit?
Actually, she did give more details, but I promised I would not write about them here.

No, actually we all burst out laughing-aren’t we great friends? 😛
Well, I guess you could say I’ve “seen” prison… (performed a prison concert lo these many moons ago… )
Never been arrested, but I’ve taunted cops; will that do?
“I’ve been thrown outa better places than this!”
Yeah, I think that counts 🙂
The thing that makes me the Black Sheep in my family is that I HAVEN’T been arrested.
I wish I were kidding. Really.
