I'll talk about the Upside to Fast Food Nation after the final edition of the S.P.P. tomorrow and this moment in redneck history:
Friday I get a phone call at work from Daddy at 4:15 saying "Meet us at Cafe Olé when you get off work." Free meal at a new (to me) place in Tulsa? Absolutely! So, I make my way north through traffic and for three miles I'm behind this Dodge 4x4 truck. It has two exhaust pipe-looking thingies coming out of either side near the front of the truck bed, behind the cab. I really have no clue if that's what they are, but that's what they look like. The guy driving the Dodge was...well...he looked like he could have used a shave, a shower, and a change into clean clothes. So, I'm driving behind him and what do I see? Not one, but TWO bumper stickers on either side of his license plate that say "I ♥ My Wife." I could understand if it was on a teeny car and the guy looked like less of a burly man, but on a 4x4 with a manly man at the wheel? And TWO bumper stickers? Is the wife really that insecure? Or do you (and/or wifey) think that your fugly truck will attract SOOOO many women that you decide to announce to the world that you're taken before any bright ideas pop into our heads? Because my thoughts when I saw the stickers after seeing the guy were NOT, "Darn it! He's not single!" And how about the Mrs.? Maybe this was the guy's idea to put these stickers on? I'm trying to picture my imaginary redneck husband (that I wouldn't be with because he was a redneck but work with me here) coming in and saying "Honey (pick nose, scratch crotch) I luvvv ya so much I done decided to 'nounce it to tha world. Come and look at my perty truck now!"
