Beautiful Orchid

Mei Lan, my Chinese (and middle) name, means "Beautiful Orchid." That's what I chose for my station wagon's vanity license plate. As I pulled into the left turn lane yesterday morning, I was startled by the tag on the car in front of me. It read "Orchid." I SO wanted to jump out of my car and let the driver know that we had the same words on our tags, only mine was in Chinese. But I refrained.
