When Baby Boomers make public displays of affection, they don't have to turn younger people's stomachs. People don't have to yell at you, "Get a room!" We put the pedal to the metal with our 9-10-11 special license plates on the Prius. The license plates are a public statement of how important this date is to us. They are also a statement that the road of the relationship, while it may sometimes be rocky, will lead us to a wonderful place. Now when I drive over the Blue Mountains to the beach condo for the weekend, my car will be publicly announcing the song in my heart.
