All is forgiven. Read on to find out why…
My friends Ben & Beth Oak were kind enough to send me the Police Blotter of the crime of which I was suspected. Here it is, courtesy of the Minuteman newspaper:
Cigarettes stolen at Citgo
The cashier at Citgo, 2747 Post Road, said that on Friday at about 3:50 p.m., a white female, 40 to 50 years old, with long blonde hair, wearing a red scarf, tan jacket and black pants came to the front counter and, having asked to buy one pack of cigarettes, inquired about two more. When the clerk turned his or her back, she took the cigarettes worth $9.21 and walked out, leaving in a newer white Mercedes.
I forgive the policeman everything! He thought I was between 40-50! And apparently I drive a Mercedes. Makes you wonder why I’d need to steal the cigarettes…

So, Gabi. What year and model is your white Mercedes? I had an old one once, years ago, that originally belonged to my great aunt, but it wasn’t white or new.
I’m glad you weren’t charged.
Actually, it sounds like mediocre police work.
I need to see that haircut.

Hilarious. The haircut doesn’t look as great as it did that day. I don’t know what sort of magic my hairdresser does but I can’t quite replicate it 🙁
