Express Yourself

As teenagers and young adults, we choose the music, clothes, friends and activities that reflect our personalities. Sometimes, we make choices through peer pressure and desire to "fit in", but invariably, these preoccupations do not last as long as those that are made from our own innate desires. As adults, we choose our vehicles, our living spaces, the paint on our walls and the decorations on our workspaces (to name a few) to give the outside world a little glimpse into our lives. One of the most prevalent expressions of individuality in my age group, of course, is the vehicle.

It is not enough for me to simply have a generic car that takes me from point A to point B. Since I sometimes spend over 3 hours a day behind the wheel, my car, named Roo [Scroll to the bottom to see pics], is an extension of me. I have a personalized license plate, a San Francisco Giants sticker on my back window, and my Star of Life (EMS symbol) stickers on my rear 1/4 windows. Complete with the intricate stereo system, perky looks and peppy engine, Roo is a partial representation of who I am.

In my travels, I often come across unique and humorous methods that other people use to display their own personalities through their vehicles. Both of these very funny adornments were spotted by me last week during my commuting ritual. It is my pleasure to share them with you.

The first, a bumper sticker on the back of a car:

Everyone has a right to be stupid.
You're abusing the privilege !

The second, and my favorite, a license plate frame:



Ha !!! Love it !!!

My favorite bumper sticker is still...

"Humpty Dumpty was pushed"

Don't ask me why, I just think it's hysterical.
