Did you earn those beads?

On the way home from work yesterday, I passed a car with a young woman driving that inspired this post inspiration, yeah!

When I was in my teens and early twenties everyone hung something from their rear view mirrors. Graduation tassel, fuzzy dice, roach clips, I mean alligator clips with rawhide cord and indian feathers, yeah yeah, that's it. Awww hell, I'm damn near 40, they were roach clips .

Today I never see fuzzy dice except in a muscle car from the 70's on it's way to a car show. I don't see the feathers anymore either, but do on occasion see dream catchers which if I had to guess serve a similar purpose as the feathers did back in the early 80's. What I do see a lot of, especially in cars with female drivers, are beads. Mardi Gras style beads. Cheap, colorful and in the case of my inspiration last night, vision interfering quantities. All hanging from the mirror.

So 2 questions came to mind quickly. One much more interesting than the other. First, how can you see with that obstruction? No, I don't care or want an explanation. Second, Did you earn those beads in the traditional Mardi Gras style? And would you like to earn some more? I can run to the store very quickly!

So, do you have any beads hanging from your mirror? Did you earn them? Do you know anyone who displays their well earned beads proudly?

Curiosity killed that cat. Fortunately I have nine lives.
