I hope you have a big trunk, 'cause I'm putting my bike in it


I had some wheelchair envy once. I broke my foot in 11th grade in the middle of an ice storm. Try doing crutches on a frozen parking lot hopped up on pain killers. It's amazing I am still alive.

I love that you used that line from one of the most quotable movies ever! Who hasn't had some wheelchair envy at some time or another?

Every time I see a vanity plate, I think: I'll bet you never stopped to consider what a dope you are going to sound like whenever anyone in an official capacity (it will happen!) asks what your license plate number is. I used to think the same thing whenever I hear someone with an unusual first name. I pictured them as an infant, out in a stroller, and someone stops to admire them and says, "Oh how sweet, and what did you name the baby?" But these days, in the post-Paltrow and post-Palin era, I don't do that one so much.

This may say something about the way my mind works, but I see the word "envy" and then the county name of "Johnson" and I think of a word that "Johnson" is a nickname for and wonder if this person wants people to envy his johnson or if if the driver has erm..."johnson envy."
Of course, maybe a cigar is just a cigar...

I wonder if they just had a nice sports car they felt others should envy, and didn't think about the fact that their county's name of "johnson"....or maybe they did!

(Came over from reading comments on "Cake Wrecks"!)
