Maybe I Do, Maybe I Don’t

When I first saw this sign, I wanted to know the back story. But soon I was glad that no one was around to ask, because this seemed to be a time when speculation would exceed reality. Note it is a statement, not a question. That’s my favorite aspect.

Was There Something They Failed to Tell Me?

The first time I saw a sign like this, I jumped to an easy conclusion. Typo – need to add an s, guys!

Then I saw a second, similar sign, and my outsider complex kicked in. Had my English teachers withheld a critical piece of information?

Or does one local signmaker get a lot of work, despite gaps in grammar education? Anybody else seen signs like this?

A Sign It Didn’t Go Well

By the time I got to the beach, the flowers had already started to shed petals into the sea. I don’t know what went down before I arrived, but a lovely bouquet in the surf can’t be a good sign.

Too bold on the first date?

Thanks for the birthday flowers, shame my birthday was last week?

Flowers can’t buy forgiveness, you @#$%^?

Graduation celebration run amuck?

Miss Runner-Up?

Or… ?

What do you think happened?

Signs Not in Sync

How do I smell the ocean when vehicles drive along the sand? These signs need to talk more. (Admittedly, they are on opposite edges of the United States, but that is a technical detail.)

While we are on the subject, maybe it’s just me – and my sheltered Californian upbringing – but…

Dear Florida, it seems so very wrong to drive on a beach.

*EVER YOU ARE, WE’RE AL*

One night this business was here, the next night there was no sign of it. (Insert Twilight Zone theme song here.)

"Wherever you are we are there too."

Okay, maybe not the very next night. Maybe several months later. Anyway, the point is, when I took this picture, I didn’t notice the phrase underneath. Now I’m trying to see the ends from the middle.

*EVER YOU ARE, WE’RE AL*

What’s your guess?
