Bumper Sticker Friday

I am declaring Friday as Bumper Sticker Friday. You either love ‘em or hate ‘em. Bumper stickers can reveal a great deal about the owner of the bumper. Some people display them to proclaim their philosophy on life. Like this one I spotted on a 1960 Ford pick up truck.

“Always Drink Upstream From the Herd”.

“Find Your Voice and Never Stop Singing” is my bumper sticker choice this week and the one that gave me the idea to start Bumper Sticker Friday. I love this sticker because it encourages positive thoughts. It also made me think about composing a list of things I want to do before I die. Number 1 – Take voice lessons.

Now, you say, how did I go from bumper stickers to making lists of things I want to do before I die? Well…life is all about ideas and words. Writers are all about words and thoughts, for starters. Where do writers get their ideas? Everywhere, so why not a bumper sticker?

Analyzing bumper stickers is also a great pastime while waiting for the light to turn green.

What favorite bumper sticker have you seen this week? I really want to hear from you.

Write it down,



  1. I have never been one to actually put a sticker on my car's bumper...
    BUT, I love to read them!

    I like this one:

    "my other car is a broom..."

    I also like the saying:
    mean people suck.

    But, once again, I would never actually place such a thing on my car!

    I suppose if I had to put something on my car, it would be my motto:

    live creatively

  2. Hi Sylvia,
    I am with you. I don't put bumper stickers on my car either and that is why I decided to start a weekly habit of discussing these little one liners.

    Your motto would make an outstanding bumper sticker.
