On car stickers and storytelling

We all tell stories about ourselves.

Some of us tell stories through our writing or our blogs. Others say more through photos or artwork. We even tell stories through our clothes or the food we eat... The houses we live in or the car we drive.

One way or the other, our stories spill out of us in some form.

A few months ago, my family noticed all these stickers that people put on the rear windows of their cars.

The photo here shows one of those stickers that I'm talking about, in case you're not sure what I mean. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, somehow, one of the things that struck us is that they pretty much depict the lives of the car owners in a nutshell.

So, every time we see cars on the road with those stickers, we "read" the car owner's story...

Sometimes, we see a set of stickers of a couple with two kids, with the dad holding a golf club, a mum on the phone, two boys - one with a football and the other with a computer. The other day, we saw one with a couple and three children, with a cat and a dog. There were times when we saw a single person, with a bicycle. Or, a couple with two dogs.

Already, we saw a glimpse of their families.

How about you? Do you end up reading stories on car stickers? Or, have you shared your story in the form of car stickers?

Oh, and in case you're wondering, we don't have car sticker stories. The one you see pictured here is a glimpse of my mum's car. ๐Ÿ™‚
