A girlfriend of mine who subscribes to this blog recently asked how so many funny things keep happening to me. I wish I knew. All I know is that I will never run out of material, both a blessing and a curse.
Here is the latest one. I had an appointment in an office building, but when I got there, I discovered it was a huge complex of several buildings. So I parked and then popped into the closest one to get directions. Hmm. No reception desk. So I wandered down a hallway, and saw this sign:
Yes, you cannot make this stuff up. Can you imagine what’s going on behind that door? I figure all hell has broken loose in a science lab, with monkeys and kangaroos leaping about, smashing beakers, and sending lab-coated scientists under the desks for cover. Even if it’s just guinea pigs, believe-you-me, they can create a good bit of mayhem. I (unwisely) allowed our daughter to breed them when she was in junior high, so she could learn about genetics. Trust me; there’s plenty of genetic info online.
Or perhaps this is the office of a jokester. I would certainly enjoy posting a sign like that, just for amusement’s sake. Years ago I heard of a brilliant burglar deterrent. You post a sign on your front door that says, “Beware of Dangerous Pyracantha. If confronted, do not try to run, just back away slowly.” Then you put a big, empty cage on your front porch, with its door open.
Of course, this assumes that burglars don’t know what a pyracantha is. It’s a plant and it looks like this:
Still, a sign like that on your home would be a great idea. And the other one is perfect for your office. Or maybe it’s just a preschool. Either way, you can believe I did not open that door.
Have you checked out my website, lately? No scary tabs that lead to maniacal creatures, I promise. Just lots of fun videos to watch and some terrific books to buy!
