Ok, so the title is a shameless play on a book I’ve never read. Be that as it may, back in, let’s call it May, when my blog was down, I saw a bumper sticker on my drive home and immediately wanted to comment on it. It was yellow and had a little picture of a motorcycle and the text “Start Seeing Motorcycles”. Perhaps it was all caps, don’t recall. First, I get the point, and I appreciate that all drivers could pay a little more attention to motorcycles. I just think it becomes hilarious if you interpret it as “Start ‘seeing’ motorcycles”. As in, start hallucinating motorcycles! It’s a directive… these people are telling me, “regardless of what you think you are seeing, start seeing some damn motorcycles! Now!”
And you know what, I think I do see more motorcycles. Maybe I’m crazy (Nikki can help you with that one), but I didn’t think we had a motorcycle in our living room before. Try it yourself. Next time you are driving, or eating, or counting your fingers and toes for the 80th time just to make sure they are all still there (hey, you’re the one doing it, and yes, it makes you weird), I implore you to start seeing motorcycles (as if you weren’t already… but yes, more).
