Signs

...signs, signs, everywhere a sign,
blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind,
Do this, don't do that. Can't you read the signs?


("Signs," 5-Man Electrical Band)

I went to get in my car to come to work this morning and lying at the top of my driveway was … a pair of men’s boxers. Blue. With some kind of little gold design on them; I didn’t get close enough to see exactly what. Do I want to know why some guy driving down the street last night felt suddenly compelled to roll down the window and toss his drawers? No! No, I truly do not.

Not that one has anything to do with the other, but here’s what a spammer wanted to sell me today: Chaepest CALIS and VAGRA online. If I were a guy and in the market for this stuff, would I really want to buy it from someone who can’t even spell it? What if they sent me Estrogen and Vagisil instead?

Here’s a sign that’s painful to look at.


Captured at 115th & Allisonville Road in Fishers, Indiana. The sign was real and was up for about two hours before someone stopped and told them how to spell peonies.

The sky is gray and ugly and it’s not nearly as warm as I thought it was supposed to be today. My hair went flat at the crown, my bangs are droopy, and my whole head has those static “flyaways.” I take these as signs that something weird is happening in the Anna Nicole Show today. I’ll bet they have better weather for it (better hair, too). I wouldn’t mind being in the Bahamas.

Words Gone Wild had a wild weekend but Twisted Linguistics has locked them up now.

the worse part – Non-speaking role in a Norse Western.

First Ademdment - First, add 'em up, dammit.

scarry - This is self-explanatory; i.e., one who is covered in frightful scars.

dfidn't - A person who is so timid that he did not do it.

clickish – What most Web pages are.

I'm an endangered species

Serena Joy said...

If that's accurate, you are indeed an endangered species. Revel in it!

Kanrei said...

I revel in my isolation LOL. I am so dreamy, romantic, elegant yet so introverted and intuitive no one ever sees it.

Kanrei said...

PS- You put that song in my head.

"I grabbed me a pen and a paper/ and I made up my own little sign/I said thank you lord for thinking about me/ I'm alive and doing fine"

Serena Joy said...

Yeah, that happens to me a lot, too, Kan.:)

Listen to that song in your head. That'll help.

$7.99 is a bit steep. You didn't happen to get the price on the day-olds, did you?

Serena Joy said...

Nah, tfg. I have a reputation as a plant killer, so I know better than to ask questions about strange posies.

Your personality type is goofy, imaginative, relaxed, and brilliant.

You are Introverted, Intuitive, Thinking, and Perceiving.

Serena Joy said...

I see most of those traits in you, Roxan, but I've never perceived you as introverted. Apparently, none of us who have taken the quiz are in any way ordinary. Interesting.

Kanrei said...

Don't worry Roxan, but I must admit she is the one I want to meet most in real life. Every time our answers are so alike I am curious what I would have been like if I were a girl.

Kanrei said...

Ordinary? From lemmings and monsters and people with word fetishes (oh my)? I think we are doing pretty well for a group of bloggers.

puerileuwaite said...

Well, bear in mind that until this post, I didn't know how you felt about fresh cut flowers. So instead I bought you a subscription to the "Lingerie of the Month" club. Suffice it to say, this is the last time I trust one of those In-Flight Magazines.

Serena Joy said...

Kan! My heart is all a-twitter. I've done some inadvertent match-making, haven't I? I don't know how Roxan feels about it, but yeah, I can see it. Am I good or what? (Y'all are coming after me with a shotgun, aren't you?)

Pugsy, you are too good to me. But you only got me the subscription? No longjohns or flannel PJs? I don't think those magazine pages are going to keep me very warm at night.

wait a second...are kanrei and I on the same tain again?

I don't feel like a Brad, either.

Serena Joy said...

LOL, Camille. I'm sure you don't look like a Brad, either.

When I saw that sign, I thought that maybe Lorena Bobbet had opened up a business.

~And the sign said, "Long-haired freaky people need not apply."
~So I tucked my hair up under my hat and went in to ask why.
~He said, "You look like a fine up-standing young man, I think you'll do."
~So I took off my hat, I said, "Imagine that. Huh! Me workin' for you."

Serena Joy said...

LOL. I hear Lorena's taken up gardening and is hell on wheels with a weed whacker.

Thanks for providing more of "Signs." It's a hell of a song.

Lee said...

Um...my personality is somewhat rare!

Now, back to those blue boxers! An unlimited range of ideas is swirling around in my mind!

Fortunately, I no longer receive spam but there was a time I was constantly receiving email about penis enlargement, which was a bit of a worry seeing that I'm female!

Scary Monster said...

Your Personality is the Rarest (INFJ)
Insecure-Nefarious-Frustrated-Jocular

Your personality type is introspective, principled, self critical, and sensitive.(LOFLMAO!)

Only about 2% of all people have your personality (90% of them are mental patients)- including 3% of all women and around 1% of all men.
You are Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, and Judging (You are kidding, right?)

Scary Monster is introverted omg that is a laugh.
SJ Me loves that sign!!!!
Me know a rabbi who do it for $4.99 and throw in a yarmulkah.

Me be thinking that maybe there be a prankster workin in that shop. You might want to recruit him or her for your new site.

Serena Joy said...

Lee, I don't know what to make of the drawers, either. I know that ladies will throw unmentionables on the stage where their heartthrob is performing. Maybe I have a fan. LOL. They were still out there this morning. I guess I'm going to have to take the shovel and get them up this afternoon.

Wow, Scary -- you're drawing the mental patients crowd? I'm jealous! I think you're right about the prankster. Nobody's spelling could be that far off. Could it? I know some ladies who can beat the rabbi's price; they'll do it for free.

Liz said...

I'm the same as LBB and Kanrei (again). ***Your Personality is Very Rare (INFP)***

They're obviously not taking into account the way I'm dressed right now when they say 'elegant'!

Boxers, eh? And it's not even Valentine's Day.

Wonderful sign.
