I put on a Happy Face

Normally I hate the idea of bumper stickers on the car. EJG loves them. He thinks that his $30,000+ rolling investment is a good place to advertise his political views. I think that advertising his liberal politics on a parked, unguarded car is simply inviting the retaliation from the rednecks less open-minded, less well-read folks we may encounter in this region. The only one I have allowed is this:

A PBS mind in a FOX news world

Anyone who would be offended by that probably doesn’t understand it.

EJG was surprised, then, to see that I had placed a magnetic sticker of sorts on the back of my 2006 metallic blue Pony, who we call Desi. She’s my midlife crisis machine, and I am known in this neck of the woods to be riding topless regardless of weather, belting out a tune with the radio, soaking in the sun and the joy of a 50+ MPH breeze through my hair. My life makes me happy, and if EJG can advertise on the car when he is disgruntled, then I want equal time.

'Minds are like parachutes - they only function when open' is the most memorable bumper text I have ever seen/retained. Happy faces should come standard!
