The Well-Placed Sewing Machine

IMG_1462My daily walk to and from work takes me past a tailor shop.  The plate glass front window of the shop prominently features a sign that appears to say “Drop your pants.”  Only as you get closer do your see that an old Singer sewing machine that props up the sign also blocks the last two words of the message “Drop your pants off here.”

It’s silly humor, to be sure, but even silly humor that unfailingly produces a chuckle is much appreciated after a long day at the office.  Every day, I appreciate that well-placed sewing machine.
