Be warned this post is not for the faint of heart. Or the faint of Religious Faith, for that matter. Those feeling in a serious mood should move on.
You've been warned!
We (Eric and I) are not bumper sticker sort of people.
Not that we don't admire some of them.
And not [choke] that we have nothing to say. [rolls eyes] puh-lease, she mutters, making fun of herself.
It's just one of those things.
Like a tatt.
Once you do it, you're committed.
And once you Do It, one is never never enough.
So we've refrained.
My friend Julie tempted me sorely a couple of months? ago, by buying a couple from the Natural Child Project.
In comes crash.
Beloved Dear Truck is totalled. (Says insurance, and more importantly, Trusted Mechanic.)
Find new car.
Nissan or 4Runner. (we're a fan of the Japanese suv's.) Whichever One says "I want to be a part of your family!!"
Nissan it is, then.
New Dear Truck boasts a couple of decorations from Germany, the Netherlands, and Austria. Very Cool, and matches burly ski/bike/luggage rack quite nicely.
But... we've never been to Germany.
Now's the time!
License plate frame.
And another statement...
Because I believe it with everything that I am.
And oh, another one....Because, you know, chances are, it's True...
Er... and another that says "Love to learn forever.... Unschool!"
And just One More (for Mama)...It appears that I am making up for lost time. (Not that all will necessarily make it to Dear Truck's backside.)
Dh has long wanted a Jesus Fish.
(Most of you should skip the rest of this post.)
Not a typical one, however.
Or even the Darwin one.
No, the one he wants says Satan.
Not because dh is a Satanist.
No... he's an Atheist. (and irreverently laughs at the whole idea.)
But he fancies himself (as do I) very Punk Rock.
And (unlike me -- I have no such Glorious Aspirations) a Rock Star.
(though while true, this story is also a poke at dh. We'll see if it compels him to submit a comment at last.)
"Since you're putting all those stickers on.... I want a Satan fish."
I remember well Beverly's commentary on Fish. (and strive to practice embracing diversity myself.)
"Okay." I agree.
I look online for said Fish.
At first I didn't see one....
But, equally good,
I did find this.....
[choke and sputter]
I think it will do.
Our friends will be able to find our New Truck, now.
