in the next car thinks "ooh, they're from Oregon! How neat!" and I also enjoy giving the waiter or whomever needs to check my Oregon ID and see what their
reaction is. In last night's case, the guy said "my roommate is from out of state too and we moved here four months ago and his car got impounded because we
didn't change our plates within ninety days." I took this as yet another gentle hint to go to the DMV. So I'm going... as soon as I eat my couscous.
