Wow, I actually *can* be offended

Yesterday I was waiting at a street corner near my home, so Larry would see me and know where to turn (it’s easy to miss my street; it sort of sneaks up on you). This actually didn’t work, because he had gotten on the wrong road north of me and had to circle around to get to my place, so he and Alicia arrived from a different direction. That worked out and we found each other, but here’s the point:

At the auto shop across Milwaukie from my street, a pickup had a decal in its back window. You’ve seen those bumper stickers that say “My kid slept with your honor student”? This one…um, this one took that idea further.

That is, it said “I slept with your honor roll student daughter.”

And now we cross the line between a smart-ass reaction to other bumper stickers and a message joking about statutory rape.

Please, please, Forces That Be, make sure I never must deal with the owner of that pickup. And please don’t mind me imagining that owner going through his fucking window right where that decal is.
