Here’s some pictures and related observations from my recent trip:
This was not my burger. Mine was a lot of food but still manageable. The salt shaker and glass are there to provide reference. The coworker who ate it had to eat it in layers, using his fork. I think he was a little embarrassed at how many of us wanted to take a picture of it before he dug in.
I stood next to this sign waiting for the elevator at the hotel long enough to begin questioning whether the man escaping down the stairs was properly proportioned or whether he was built rather like Barbie, with excessively long legs.
I then pondered whether that was acceptable since the goal was to show walking and thus there should be some emphasis on the legs. Surely it’s a more acceptable reason than Barbie’s.
I think perhaps the hotel elevator was a bit slow.
The problem with juxtaposing these two bumper stickers on a nearly black tinted window is that it really looks like one bumper sticker. I couldn’t figure out for a minute why the driver’s German Shepherd looked so much like Master Yoda in sunglasses.
Okay, ladies and gents, this is why grammar is important. My response to this board at an airport restaurant was, “Hell no, I don’t want to try one of the burritos you sold last year! Even if you do still have one that the purchaser hasn’t already digested.”
They wanted to convey two points. One, that they sold a lot of Cancun Burritos last year, implying they must be pretty good. And, two, that you should really try one. Trying to combine those two thoughts into one sentence didn’t work too well.
