It's so wrong

We should have done this a couple of months ago, but todaywe went and registered our van in Texas. It just seems so wrong for some reason. Our van is no longer the unique out of state van, it's just another van from Texas. Just another plain old gray minivan. If anyone is shopping for Christmas presents for me, I wouldn't mind a sports car of any kind.
Not only did they make me change plates on my car, they took my Nevada driver's license. Now I'm not going to get the "Hey, Nevada, cool" comments when I have to show someone my ID. I'm just another guy from Texas. Bummer.
Hey, I just inadvertently drew a parallel between me and my minivan. How sad is that? It's a good thing I'm not 40 or I'd probably end up going out and buying myself that sporty car and a Member's Only jacket and cranking up some REO speed wagon in the parking lot at work.
Oh, and as a welcome to Texas, they give you a $90 "Welcome to Texas" registration fee. Thanks for taking my money, Texas!
