If you’ve spent a significant amount of time at the Centreville Public Library as I have, you’ve probably noticed a mysterious but very religious station wagon parked near the entrance of the library, usually in the same spot. Because I’ve found the car parked here at all times of the day, I’ve inferred that the owner 1.) Doesn’t work, 2.) Has a job with unconventional hours or 3.) Is a library employee. Today I parked next to the mysterious religious station wagon before going into the library to pick up some holds and I decided to do a little investigating and try to figure out who the owner of the car was. I will be honest and say I made some perhaps stereotypical assumptions and am guessing 1.) The owner is a man (why I assume this, I don’t know), 2.) He is probably middle-aged and 3.) He probably has a bushy beard.
So I casually strolled through the library looking for a man who might own a religious station wagon and encountered two likely candidates. The first was a red-haired man with a beard who was looking up vintage furniture on a library computer and the other was a short man wearing a t-shirt with a logo that suggested he may very well own a religious station wagon. However, I wasn’t able to come to any definitive conclusions. When I went back to my car I decided to take a few pictures of the car. I will be honest…my heart was beating fast and hard because I thought the owner of the station wagon might come out at any moment and he might not be the kind of person who would appreciate my photographic interest in his car. But then again, I can only assume that this person’s whole point is to draw attention to his car, so I convinced myself I could make a reasonable argument for my picture-taking if he did catch me.
Anyway, I figured I’d post these on here to see if anyone out there has any idea what religion the station wagon represents. There is an e-mail on the station wagon so if I’m feeling brave I might just might put together an e-mail in hopes of clarification and enlightenment.
