Yesterday I wanted to post about this but with already posting twice I figured I would save it for today. I work at the University of Michigan (U of M) and I graduated from Michigan State University (MSU). The schools are BIG rivals. You need to know that to appreciate what I am going to share with you. In case you are new to my blog you will also need this background info. I work in Ann Arbor Michigan. Ann Arbor is a very liberal community, I, on the other hand, am very conservative. Stage is set. Here is what the back of my van looks like.
I park in a large parking structure every day with this facing out so MANY people see it as they pass by. So not only do I have a HUGE Spartan "S" on my van I also sport a Nobama bumper sticker. You would think that this might be a problem for me or my van but quite the opposite is true. Yesterday I was getting out of my car and I walked around the back and was waiting for DD1 to get out and join me. I turned to my left and there was a man standing there which startled me a little. He proceeded to tell me that he drives by my van all the time and since he happened to catch me he wanted to let me know that I was courageous to be driving around with these things on my car and that he appreciated and agreed with my Nobama sentiments. I told him he was not the first person to say so and thanked him and told him to keep up the good fight.
It's interesting how much attention that bumper sticker seems to generate. One day a few months ago I was stopped at a light. I happened to look over at the car on my left and the woman in the passenger seat was gesturing for me to roll my window down. I did and she told me her husband LOVED my bumper sticker and wanted to know where I had gotten it. Makes me feel some of the "hope" BO was talking about that come November there will be a "Change" I can believe in!!
