Caution: Men Fighting Trash Cans (What My Little One Said)
Every summer, work is done to the roads around my house. It looks like exactly the same work every summer; I truly wonder if it isn't indicative of some sort of corruption.
But anyway. There was this construction sign (above) on the road leading to the pool. "Men fighting trash cans!" said my youngest daughter.
That absolutely cracked me up. It does look like a person winding up to punch some sort of boxy thing, doesn't it?
I liked her comment because it just goes to show how there are different ways of viewing the world. I don't know if my daughter's way of interpreting this sign shows more imagination than what the rest of us see (man holding a flag), or if the rest of us have just been duped into accepting a rather inaccurate looking sign.
What do you think?
