I Plead the Fifth :)

Today was like a day on the set of The Sopranos. Thankfully, it is over.....I think. I did however, learn something.......a perfect little phrase that I am hoping will serve me well.

"Based on the advice of my attorneys, I am invoking my Constitutional rights under the 5th amendment and am choosing to defer this line of questioning because my answers might tend to incriminate me."

Susan should be proud! :)

Now, I like to utilize valuable information in multiple facets of my life, if it applies. Like Professor's lecture on The Serenity Prayer.....if I can't change it then I have to accept it.....applied that in friendships, health care, work, etc. Valuable and easily applicable to many things. So I am hoping to do the same with my newest catch phrase. :)

I think the next time Professor and I have a punishment session......during his interrogations, I will deploy the above mentioned phrase. :)  He seems to appreciate my intelligence, so perhaps he will find this idea very clever of me. Then again, perhaps he will think it sassy and then violate my 8th amendment rights.

Decisions.......decisions.......oh what to do? LOL!  :)


  1. I'm sorry that you had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

    Susan is, indeed, proud of you. I would like to point out that the phrase you have learned is precisely correct where criminal sanctions may apply. In other situations, you have another choice: invoke the 1st Amendment since freedom of speech includes the freedom not to speak. The Professor might be very impressed that you know that. However, I do tend to think that it will matter little which you use: the end result will almost certainly be the same. :)

  2. Lol.....thanks Susan. You are very right in saying it matters very little which I my latest blog post to see the new Naughty Girls Bill of Rights that Professor sent to me last night as a response to my 5th amendment plea. Lol! Help Disciplinarian is re-writing my Constitution! My poor bottom :(
