Well over a year ago, one morning on my way to work, I noticed a car in front of me with a vanity license plate reading "IIII HI". I have a bit of a fascination with vanity license plates - on a par with my fascination with things like horrible movies and mullets. I just can't get over how stupid every single one I've ever seen is. Even so, "IIII HI" seemed more usless and stupid than most, and I couldn't figure out what it was supposed to mean. It seemed to be stuttering at me from the ass of that car.

The guy who owns that car must have as horrible a job as I do, because since then I have seen him multiple times, and every time I freak out a little. It's weird to recognize a car and know you share space with that same person every single day, and yet you've never seen their face or anything.

Anyway. This morning, I was stopped at a red light, and heard honking. The guy next to me wanted to tell me that my driver-side brake light was out. And as he pulled away after I thanked him, I noticed -!!!!!! - IT WAS THE IIII HI GUY. I TALKED TO HIM!

And minutes later, still contemplating that vanity plate, I realized that it wasn't a vanity at all. For a while Mass did in fact issue license plates with that pattern - four numbers and two letters. The I's were actually 1's. And the HI was completely random.

It's been a weird day.
