Hello Kitty License Plate

It seems that when people begin to read or hear about my Hello Kitty Hell, they tend to see more Hello Kitty all around them. When they do, of course they decide to share their finds with me. The above is a photo that Gasping For Breath came across after seeing the post about the Hello Kitty Ferrari:

Oh that reminds me. Right after you posted that pink car I wound up behind another Hello Kitty fan. And snapped a shot with my camera phone. Not as intense as the car your wife wants but …

Now most logical people would assume that snapping a photo like this would be innocent enough and not bring more wrath to my Hello Kitty world, but that would be highly underestimating the Hello Kitty fanatic. While obviously the car above doesn’t compare with the Hello Kitty Ferrari, that doesn’t mean that it can’t cause more trouble as the following conversation we had shows:

wife: “What’s that photo?”

me: “Nothing…”

wife: “That looks like Hello Kitty” (I think she has a radar about this stuff…I was on the computer all morning and she walks in the one minute I’m looking at a Hello Kitty photo)

me: “Yes…one of the members took a photo of a car she saw”

wife: “Hey, I want that license plate! How can we get that?!?” (can’t get personalized license plates like that in Japan)

me: “Sorry impossible” (lying through my teeth)

The problem, of course, is in the days to come when she finds out that it is possible to get such a license plate and may be just one more reason we won’t get a car in the US…

  1. You won’t have to worry about that. If this photo is real, the licence plate is already issued and as such can’t be issued again. I suppose it would depend on which state you moved into because identical custom plates can be issued once per state, but there are enough hello kitty fanatics to have already registered “Helo KT” in every state.

  2. i am hysterical laughing as i now understand the Hello Kitty Hell my own husband is in as i also suffer from the HK disease!!! I have him on a mission as he needs to find me a HK muffler i saw on a web page!! keep up because i loved reading all your articles.

  3. I just order the plate, HLO KTY1 yesterday. I am on a mission to put my boyfriend in Hello Kitty Hell unless he starts doing something around the house. 🙂

    I think you obviously have some deep seeded admiration for Hello Kitty and, you are a pretty good writer. I really enjoy the read.
