This was an assignment I had for my creative writing class, in which I had to think of a bumper sticker, and then describe the car and the person driving it. It was a lot of fun to do, and it served as the basis for my other post “Delilah.”
I see an old 1980s Buick Century, its tan color faded from years of weathering and neglect; it’s covered in dust from the recent thunderstorm, mud covering the bottom half from driving on a rocky dirt road every day. It pulls up to the local liquor station, 20 miles down the road, the closest one outside the driver’s dry county. Putting the car in park, the car door opens.
