back side

I considered taking them off.

Instead all week I slipped into the back row wishing my car could hide in an open parking spot.

It was as if every car in the parking lot were white and mine was the lime green one...with balloons and arrows pointing to it.

My self consciousness surprised me, I am not usually like this...I even asked Jake, "Do you think I should remove them?"

It was the new job, not knowing anything about these people, and wanting them to like me...that was steering me towards that back corner spot.

The road is anonymous. A work parking lot is not.

Until today when my co-worker and I had to go somewhere in his car...as we walked to his car I was incredibly aware of my back side.

I held my breath. Mine was next to his...

As we drive away he turns to me and says, "Oh, by the way, I love your bumper stickers."

I was ecstatic!


I can't believe I ever considered taking them off.
