So it's been over two years of psychology - more than enough for anyone. This week let's take a break and do something else.
One of the joys of travel is discovering signs, menu items, and misphrasings that provide a welcome jolt. And one of the cardinal rules of travel is that you never point out the problem to anyone who might correct it. Like a pristine campground, your job is to leave it as is for others to enjoy.
Of course, you don't always have to leave home for these. Here are just a few ...
|I've always loved this Australian realty firm. I'll take a dozen.|
|A good Cambodian Buddhist recommendation.|
|Vancouver. Just the other day I was planning a party|
to celebrate the blandness of daily life. Ultimately I went with another tile,
one that exclaimed the tedium of meaningless existence.
|So much easier than leashing the tail and dragging him everywhere.|
|A reminder of the importance of branding. No waiting!|
|A great anticonsumerist reminder. It turned out|
this was exactly right: I didn't need anything.
|A proconsumerist point of view, for balance.|
|Also available: Chocolate Bypass, Butterscotch Crutch, and Strawberry Eyepatch.|
|In an airport, is this a hopeful or pessimistic sign to see?|
|Is it just me, or is calling your restaurant S.O.L. self-defeating?|
Okay, time to get back to psychology.
