almost busted for possession  
Just now, I was almost pulled over for what must be a first.

As it is Purim, and the traditional foods are often "filled" things like kreplach and ravioli, I decided to go to Whole Paycheck to pick up some snooty pasta (no roller :( :() and cheese, including some real Parmigiana, which, as we all know, smells like the feet of angels. On the way back home, (picture me) rolling up Ponce, I did what any sane person would do with a hunk of parm sitting in the grocery bag on the passenger seat: I grabbed it at the red light, unwrapped it, and sat there with it in my hands up to my nose, deeply huffing and snorting.

I felt a little self-conscious at this point, so I looked around, and to my right there's a cop watching me, giving me the ol' squinty eye. (My windows are always down at this point because my A/C hardly works.) He rolled down his window and said "Hey! What do you have there?" and I turned a little red and showed him that it's cheese (or perhaps an enormous crack rock), and lifted up the grocery bag so he could see it. Meanwhile, the light has turned green and everyone starts honking behind us (or behind me anyways.) Finally he seemed satisfied that I was not coking up, slowly nodded at me and drove off.

Upon being asked by a cop what you had, you should have immediately hidden it and said "nothin'." When he pulled you over and searched your vehicle, you should have waited until he found the cheese, and then jealously reached for it, screaming "Noooo! Mine! Gimmie!" He would have felt really stupid when he realized it was cheese.
