New License Plate!!
After months of waiting, I was treated this week to a welcome envelope from the state Motor Vehicles Division [how often does one say that?] . A perfect birthday present if I do say so myself. The greatest thing about this plate is not that I get to demonstrate my collegiate loyalty, but all of the opportunities to annoy all of the dog fans in the city as we all sit in traffic for hours each week.
The other interesting thing about the fact that these plates are available is the response from various members of the Legislature — all up in arms about the fact that a UGA plate isn’t available in Florida. Threatening to eliminate the UF plate unless there is reciprocity in the Sunshine State. The interesting thing about that is that the Auburn alumni have had an AU plate for more than a year, and there was no similar uproar. Shows you who the bigger rival is.
So anyway, get used to seeing these plates around town — those of you who live in the state. For those of you out-of-towners, feel free to print this page so you don’t feel left out.
