A sticky situation


Several nights ago, I dropped in on a local brewery. A friend (who will remain nameless to assure the preservation of his job) was working the nightshift, and invited me over to the east side for a free beer. After a 10pm tour of the facility, a quick nose-around in the gift shop, and a couple of pints, I came across a brewery bumper sticker.

You see where this is leading.

The next morning, I walked out to find “FRESH BEER” slapped across the bumper of my car. I don’t know what possessed me to think that this might be a good idea, as I have never put a bumper sticker of ANY sort on my 1990 Honda. Because apparently it’s too classy of a vehicle?

But alas, what’s done is done. Maybe I should just allow my car to be “that car.” My friend Kristen thinks it would be a great idea for all of my friends to bestow bumper stickers upon me before I leave on The Big Trip, and pioneering the effort, has offered one that says, “Watch out: I have PMS and a hand gun.” I now welcome any and all stickers – hopefully ones that will counteract the trashy start I’m off to. Although I’m not sure that “posh” and “bumper sticker” can co-exist in the same sentence.

It starts with bumper stickers. But before you know it, I could own a pair of jeans with P-H-A-T emblazoned across the ass.

    I, for one, think that the beautiful little white apple with a bite taken out of it would be a nice addition to your super sexy vehicle! I like the bumper sticker idea. Fresh beer, though? Are you sure it was only one pint you had? ;)

    nevermind, you say a couple…I just thought that for someone who’s signature drink used to be a vodka cran, it would take more to put you in a “fresh beer” state.

    WOW, that is funny… “Fresh Beer” and “Watch out, I have PMS and a hand gun” would definitely not be the first two epitomizing slogans I would think of in reference to Annie Parsons… Can’t wait to see what the rest of them turn out to be! :) Ooo! Want, “A Fit Woman is a Powerful Woman”? Courtesy of Moving Comfort?

    Annie, you are sooo funny! Perhaps you could balance out “Fresh Beer” with a Christian fish or something ;-). Or maybe, “Nashville or Bust!”

    I am at work, reading this blog, and enjoying the ab workout that is my laughter because of your genius.

    I’m sooo buying you one that says “Nashvegas” or “I’ve been honkey-tonkin’ in Nashville, TN.”

    Hey before you move to Nashville, be sure to get the obligitory Seattle “Obama” or “Clinton” stickers. Yep – those will be perfect in Tennessee.
