I was recently stopped by Border Patrol in New Mexico for a routine inspection. In my car, there was a stuffed animal on the dash. Do you think this helped my chances for release?
Small, furry animals and childlike toys can invoke pleasurable thoughts in the minds of even the most rigid authority figures. I can't help but think this assisted you passing through the Texas-New Mexico border. I am no expert, but I think drug traffickers carry more intimidating para-phenalia in their vehicles.
Keep on truckin',
