Dept. of License Plates


Now, it may be that this gal was shooting for Mighty Girl – the plate was on the back of a black Nissan Titan pickup truck – and was afraid that MIT GYRL would have people thinking she was not so much mighty as brainy. But if you read it as it sounds, you get Empty Girl, which sounds as sad as anything I’ve ever seen on the back of a car. Mourning a miscarriage? Unless, of course, she sees herself as a manifestation of the Sacred Feminine, the vessel waiting to be filled…

    MT = Montana. The pickup truck is a dead giveaway.

    Mountain Girl? Should’ve been MTN GYRL in that case, but maybe only MT was available. But then it’s closer to “Mount Girl,” which, assuming the imperative tense, would not be the kind of thing you would want on your license plate if you’re a GD GYRL.

    A Giddy Girl?
