I can be lugubrious with you.

I don't pay a lot of attention to a lot of things.

For example, when I'm driving? I notice nothing except the road directly in front of me. This is highlighted by conversations such as this:

Stephanie: Oh my God! Look at those new apartments! Aren't they pretty?
Jason: Yes. They are pretty. But not new.
Stephanie: What? I've never seen them!
Jason: Um, sweetie? They're historic.
Stephanie: Oh.

I've driven by those apartments every single day for the past four and a half years. I'm not kidding.

Anyway. I've decided that I want to be better about that. So today, I was zipping along, chilling to some Jason Mraz, and I noticed a big 18-wheeler that had a placard on the back which read:

IT'S A CHILD, NOT A CHOICE!

Which is cool, if you swing that way. But doesn't that seem like a really odd place to advertise your feelings about abortion? On the back of a truck like that?


I don't know. Maybe it's a good place. Judging by how most of the people on Interstate 40 drive? They aren't paying much attention to the road anyway.

I saw a bumper sticker the other day that said:

I am a Christian
I own a gun
I am a Democrat

And I kind of wondered the same thing. I was like, um, that's great and all, but why did you feel the need to advertise that on your vehicle?

The same day I also saw one that said, "I bet Jesus would have used his turn signals," and I laughed for about 20 minutes.

I get a kick out of zealous bumper stickers. You don't see too many up here, but when you, they're always doozies.

I love a good bumper sticker. When I was in high school I got a great one after my ex and I had broken up for the 400th time. I put it in the middle of my back window and then parked in front of his car.

It said

"I really miss my ex, but my aim is getting better."

Best $2.50 I ever spent.

I personally want the "I don't give a shit about your bumpersticker" bumpersticker.

Yup.
