How About Some Produce to Ease the Pain?

When I first got my Treo, I didn’t foresee much use for the camera feature.

The problem with hair removal?
It should be more nutritious.

Turns out I was wrong. I seem to keep encountering things that simply must be captured on film, if only for the purpose of verification that I didn’t make them up. Something like the sign pictured here, that just can’t be fully conveyed as a verbal anecdote.

The establishment that had this sign adorning its window is called “Beauty Center” – a profoundly uninspiring store name if ever I heard one. In fact, it’s such a boring name for a business that I can’t help but wonder if they were thinking of re-naming it, and the sign was a test run of sorts for one of the new name finalists. In fact, I hope it was, purely for the sake of the owners. Who the hell is going to remember a beauty supply store called “Beauty Center?” “Fresh Tomatoes and Leg Waxing,” on the other hand, is pretty much unforgettable.

    Hah. That’s so funny! Of course, I don’t like tomato(e)s OR leg wax — so you find find me anywhere near that establishment. Maybe if they had zuchini and razors…

  2. Erin G. says:

    sorry — you WOULDN’T find me.
    (my computer….hiccuped?)

  3. Derek says:

    Ooh, yeah! I bet they have the razors already in stock, too! Then again… a lot of people would probably think zucchini was a new exfoliant or something. ;-)

    Ok, I nearly died laughing when I saw that!
