You don’t really see this much anymore… at least I don’t.
People placing with wreckless abandon, bumper stickers of places they’ve been, bands they’ve seen, funny sayings… so I thought I’d show what one young lady here in Houston, Texas has adorned her truck with.
I thought this would be a good one to start off with. She’s claimed ownership of her femininity.
This one resonated with me a lot. I used to drive an old beater that basically got me from point A to point B. One time I was going to meet the ex so I could pick up my daughter for the weekend. I saw a brief window of opportunity in the traffic where I could squeeze through one wave of vehicles and the next as the light’s cycle went through it’s drill. I mashed it!… button hooked it around the turn, through the light, hit the incline of the entrance of the gas station, leaned around the gas pumps and kinda slid to a stop. The daughter thought it was cool. The ex was pissed. Apparently it stuck in my daughter’s mind because just this weekend she said, “daddy remember when you came real fast around the corner that one time when you were picking me up?”
I’ve been here before. In fact, I’m sure i’ve yelled this in traffic at the morons who pervade the streets of Houston. Most certainly the yankee infiltration that our fair city has been victim to because of energy companies and the like. : ) (like that little bit of southern nationalism? : )
I thought this was a testament to the nature of most folks from the Lone Star State. No matter how weird, obscure or goofy you are… always proud to be a Texan. (a girl I used to date who was from Ohio said, “you know the rest of the country thinks y’all (i put in the y’all for effect) are a bunch of arrogant bastards.” I kinda blinked a little and responded with… “you make it sound like a bad thing.” : )
I’m in a really goofy mood. Thanks Amuirin, B-mom and Lazy Buddhist for making me feel better.
But THIS ONE… This was my favorite. Take that chumps! i AM his favorite.
ok, so this one actually got me to thinking. Does Jesus have any one favorite? I mean he must have favorites, right. If he can favor believers over non believers then why wouldn’t he favor a few of those in the believers crowd? You know… those that gave a little more in the offering plate, maybe those that prayed a little harder than others, those that didn’t keep sinning over and over again just because they knew they weren’t perfect just forgiven. Don’t ya think so?
I don’t know… What I do know is I need to get me one of those stickers so I can slap it on my guitar case.
