Plates: D-Style


#1

Another one of my (ok, pointless) hobbies is writing down the names of interesting lisence plates. I guess this sprung from those long childhood road trips, where you had to have something else to do after counting the cows, annoying/punching your siblings, and asking “Are we there yet?” for the umpteenth time. I know I did.

Hence: the Black Notebook. Along the same lines of the Green Notebook, it is top secret + probably something that should be reported to the DMV as a matter of State Security. I’m sure there’s a criminal’s plate somewhere in there.

I intend to publish it someday- as a self help guide for those who need ideas.
Anyway, quite a few plates come up that you suspect the driver(or a family member)
has GOT to have diabetes.Some are blatantly obvious:
MINIMED
ISLET TX
NSLN PUMP(mine, before I totaled that car)


And some, take a bit of imagination:
SUGAR RN
LIVN HIGH
HI TST
QIK STIX
PUMPIE
SWET PEE
DIE BROKE(yes, yes, and yes…)
SUGAR PI

One of the funniest plates I saw, was a Lamborghini Countach parked in the middle of two parking spots-and yes, it could have fit in one. It’s plate read: BCUZ ICN (because I can) that individual obviously insanely rich + spoiled. Must be nice.

I would like to get another specialized plate, haven’t decided if I want it to be diabetes related.
