Stick 'em Up

You can tell a lot about a person by the stickers they have placed on their cars. My car is sticker-free by choice. I'm afraid that if I purchase a fish, NOTW, or cross sticker for my back window, people may question my dedication if they drive past and see me shouting at my children or cutting someone off when I have missed my exit. I admire people who cover their cars with stickers. They don't care what people think. Sometimes I care too much.

The political stickers are rampant right now. I don't wear my political stand on my sleeve, let alone my car.

I see one sticker all over town that states, "COEXIST." I have no clue what those drivers are tying to convince the rest of us to do. I'm slow that way.

I HATE, with all capital letters, the peeping kid stickers. To me they are repulsive and stupid. I'm sure those people wouldn't pee on a FORD if one was given to them, for free.

Mid-twenty something's love stickers. They love to advertise for companies with whom they are passionate. They are still caught up in the "everyone will know my opinion whether they want to or not" way of thinking. I don't, care that is, about their opinion.

If I had to advertise something with a sticker if would have to be Ralph's Chocolate Chip Ice Cream which happens to be my favorite ice cream in the world. Ralph's Grocery doesn't have bumper stickers for their ice cream, hence, my car is still sticker-free.

One of the most brash stickers I have seen said, "Single and Beautiful." I looked everywhere for the beautiful person who drove the car which was parked next to mine and couldn't find anyone. I'll bet they are single because they are too beautiful.

So, for now, no advertisements, no "my kid is a this or that," no praying girl, no college support, nothing, just a plain, old car, that needs to be washed.

Good post! I'll never forget passing that pink hatchback that had a HUGE decal that said "Daddy's Princess." Driving alone was this huge Samoan guy! It cracks me up to this day, years later.

i peek here from time to time (found you via sarah's blog). i too have no bumper stickers on my vehicle, i'd end up being a hypocrite of my chosen holy sticker, so i refrain.
however, i did see a bumper sticker i thought was hilarious once which said,
"Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, because you are crunchy and good with ketchup."

what does it mean?? it makes me laugh. it makes me wonder what dragons i ought to stay away from.
