You are probably wondering why the disclaimer and what it has to do with the DMV. Here it is…
First off I PASSED the smog test!! Woohoo!! And my check engine light hasn’t gone back on yet! A small woohoo on that because I know it won’t last… that’s ok, I need to take ol’ Betty (that’s my car) in for some work, but at least now I don’t have a clock ticking above it and the threat of getting pulled over for registration (again). So YAY. It can wait until after IVF 🙂
I was so excited that I passed I went straight over to the DMV to get my Oregon registration all good and legal. I had Washington plates, but I didn’t think about what my new plates would say. I handed over all of my goodies to the clerk: the form, title, insurance card, smog paper thingie, and check. She hands me back my new plates and stickers. “Yay for 2 year registration!” I think to myself… then I look down at the plates. Oh. Dear. God.
For those who don’t know, the term “420” is known around the U.S. as a term for marijuana possession or appreciation. Now I live in the PNW. Here in Oregon it is a term widely known by all, whether they are into it or not. So cool. I now look like a drug dealer because I just happen to get “420 EEZ”… easy pot here. No, not really.
