On the way home from work, I see signs.

One was a hand-lettered thing that was definitely a whiteboard on an easel, precariously perched in that tiny strip of grass between the sidewalk and the road, on a windy day... And it said:

DISCOUNTS ON
MEN
HAIR
CUTS

Written in blocky letters that were outlined in green and colored in in blue. Advertising the sort of sale everyone wants to see. Though the men in the discount bin can't be very good quality. And I wasn't going to pay for cuts anyway.

Also, there's a sandwich shop on a corner very near here that recently got new owners or something, and there's new signage on the windows, advertising "California Sandwiches", "California Hamburgers" (I can't decide if that's a hamburger with avocado, cucumber, and carrot, or if it's just a regular hamburger only more disgusting and drowned in thousand island salad dressing or cat vomit or whatever it is they put on burgers at In-N-Out), and... (this is really the best one) "Low-Carb Salad". That last one makes me wonder exactly what is in the high-carb salad. Or maybe they have only recently discovered forms of salad that aren't potato salad (which is the only non-low-carb salad I can think of).

I used to go past a sign every day that said:

"Hey 4 Sale. Arround the Cornor"

Cracked me up every single time.
