There is someone in Seattle driving around in a Flamingo car.
It’s not me. And it’s not Macklemore.
I’m turning this moment of jealousy into an opportunity for public awareness. So, to my peeps in Washington state; if you ever find yourself on the highway and see this woman, you need to give her a honk-out. Not just for me, but for all of us.
This photo came to me courtesy of my friend Hilary. It was a good thing it was Hilary driving that day and not me, as I would have driven off the side of the road. I mean, honestly, this is magnificent. An hour of internet stalking later, I came to find another photo of the car close up, and y’all: IT’S NOT JUST FLAMINGOS. It’s crystals and beads and flowers and some sort of pink pom-pom witch hat…
It’s like some sort of Stevie Nicks meets Lilly Pulitzer extravaganza. On a car. And it drives. I’m not the one driving it, but okay, I’m a big girl, I can move past this.

Now, I don’t actually own a vehicle, but if someone reading this has experience affixing things to a car, preferably in a way that can be done quickly under the darkness of nightfall, I would love to hear what you have to say. Feel free to email to me directly, as I have friends and relations who might read this and become suspect. I don’t want to ruin the surprise.
