Here in Los Angeles, we are very into our cars. Our cars are our homes away from home, and some of us even live out of them. What better way to show our personalities on the streets than to have the car of our dreams?
Unfortunately, we are college students, and most of us cannot afford the car we actually want. So, rather than showing who we are through our cars, we show our personalities with license plate frames. A crappy car now has a top-rate license plate frame with a gold or sliver plate.
I looked in the parking lots of CSUN, and found some sayings that students on campus use to describe themselves. Of course there were plenty of those generic, “I’d rather be…(how about writing a term paper; I have yet to see that frame),” and the “It’s not easy being a princess,” frames. But for all those people who have those frames, it’s time to get a new one. Especially the princess ones. Ladies, the princess themes are played out and overdone.
Here are some interesting frames that would keep me inching forward in traffic, in hopes that I’d get close enough to read the frame, but not so close that I’m about to rear-end the car.
— It’s hard to be humble when you’re me.
I know a few people who could use this frame. It would describe their personalities to a tee.
— If you catch me, can you handle me?
Is this person a wild tiger? This frame might be saying a little too much.
— Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere.
Is this girl a “good” girl or a “bad” girl?
— The secret to life is anticipating the rainbows.
I agree. Always look for the rainbow in every situation.
— Don’t come too close or I’ll flick a booger on your car.
You’re making me come close to your car by having this frame. I can’t read it from far away.
— Sworn to fun, loyal to none.
I really want to get to know this person.
— This is a four-seater car, one for me and three for my attitude.
Wow, what a big ego. I think you need an attitude adjustment.
— Star light, star bright, where the hell is Mr. Right?
What are you going to say when you find Mr. Right? I kissed a lot of toads and finally found my prince?
— Me and whomever, but not forever.
OK, well at least the people you get involved with will know what to expect.
— In this jungle, every girl needs her Jeep.
Much better than, “it’s a Jeep thing; you wouldn’t understand.”
This makes me want to stay as close to the car as I possibly can, but then again I’m a rebel.
— Drive fast, love slow, live full.
This frame is my personal favorite.
— Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
— I’m not spoiled; I just buy what I want.
I like this one a lot more than the ones saying something about Daddy buying it. At least this person is independent enough to claim that he or she takes care of him or herself, and isn’t bragging about using up someone else’s money.
— Honk if you’re cute, rich and single.
Uh-oh. This is where all the stereotypes about women come from. Thanks for keeping up that facade that all women are shallow, lady.
— Wait… I don’t get it.
Is this person a blonde?
— I love firemen.
OK, I guess if you aren’t a fireman, you’d better stay away from this car.
— Sssh! It thinks it’s a Lexus.
This is great! I think you are, I think you are, I think you are.
