For fun, someone in my family (it might have been me) bought a car magnet with a giant pink paw print and the words "Crazy Cat Lady" and put it on my sister's car. For information's sake, you should know my sister has a master's degree and a dozen cats and an academic sense of humor about her role in feeding the feline population in our town. The "Crazy Cat Lady" placard is intended as a bumper sticker, but it's magnetic. Which means...its ownership is transferable. Highly transferable. My sister laughed about it, and then decided we should all enjoy a taste of the unexpected. No one in the family is safe. My teenage son found the magnet on the back of his rusty silver pickup truck. My husband has discovered it on his shiny blue pickup truck. My parents have temporarily displayed it on their vehicle. My brother-in-law drove to work for a week with it. And...it's currently on my car.
It's a badge of honor. We pass things around in my family. Ridiculous things.
For quite some time, there has been a small resin Jesus that glows in the dark and makes his way into the strangest places. He was originally discovered in a flower bed when one of my sisters was doing her spring planting, and since then he's enjoyed wearing seasonal decorations and showing up unexpectedly in purses, kitchen cabinets, cup holders in cars, toolboxes, and underwear drawers. It's a badge of honor and responsibility to be the current holder of plastic glow-in-the-dark Jesus.
That's true love.
Have a great summer, and if you see someone with a "Crazy Cat Lady" magnet on the back of their car, wave and smile and wonder if they know it's there.
By the way, the picture at the top is my beloved cat Bert. He's not the only cat in my house...
