Do you ever feel as if people don’t “get” you? Do you have ideas, opinions, outlooks that the world is begging to know?
Sure, now you have Facebook and Twitter to get the word out on what a cool and unique person you are! But “back in the old days” there was a different venue for the lowdown on how cool you were. How witty, dedicated, screwed up a person could be. Statements were made with only six letters and/or numbers.
The Personalized License Plate!
I thought up this blog because for the past six weeks everywhere I drive I’ve been seeing vanity plates. Some are pretty easy to figure out. Some make you think. Some make you laugh and some can be downright offensive!
But every one of them says SOMETHING about the driver of the car. Here are a handful I saw myself.
PURFIK This says it all, doesn’t it? This person is full of confidence and puts the van in vanity, LOL. Also, don’t follow too close to her as she might not be paying attention as she admires her reflection in the rearview mirror!
BADNUF This particular plate had a sardonic tone to it as the car it was on was like a Volkswagon Bug. This guy probably won’t have road rage….road snark, maybe but unlikely to pull a gun out.
NAILZ Pretty certain this one was a reflection of her occupation. The SUV she was driving was a blah sort of tan…no OPI pink for this gal.
SUVIN Not a clue. Was NOT a SUV. Ideas?
ZOMBI3 This one was sort of trendy though it begs the question…where are Zombi1 and 2???? (Looks anxiously in back seat)
GRANNA I like this one for the pure Celtic feel of it.
I Googled some others and these are ones I liked.
I don’t know what I’d have on a vanity plate of my own….IRISH1? WRTR? CATMOM?
Or what about my newest hero, Brady Sullivan? MGK MAN? DNGRUS? ELF LOL?
What about you? Do you have vanity plates? What are some you’ve seen? What would you put on one if you did get them? If you’re a writer, what would a character of yours say? (Use only6 letters/numbers)
