Things That Bother Me


I noticed this sign yesterday. It marks the men's room on the main hall of ballrooms at the Princess Royale Hotel, in Ocean City, Maryland.

It's one of those things that bothers me just on the periphery of awareness; something is wrong but it takes a closer look to see exactly what.

Is this meant to be the possessive form of "Men?" Or the plural of "Man." The former of course is "Men's." The latter would be "Men."

But, "Mens?"

I really just meant to take a picture of the sign for use in this post. When I saved it to my laptop and looked at it full size, I realized that I have created "Self portrait in bathroom door."

That, also, is vaguely troubling.

I'm hoping that no one saw you take a picture of the Men's room door. That could be interperted the wrong way...

...And I really hope you put the camera away before you actually went inside...

Or am I about to take blogging to a whole new place?

You know, that picture turned out pretty darned cool with you in it like that - even if not intentional.

I'm just a stranger out surfing random blogs (for the helluvit) and ran across yours - I've bookmared it because I like your style - your posts are interesting - nice blog and keep up the great work!
