Picture Postcard: The Inconvenience Store

22 Feb

February 22, 2023

A new store opened up in my area recently. It’s typical corner place, selling snacks, chips, the usual.

Of course, it does seem rather exclusive, but don’t worry, you don’t need an appointment to get in because, as the sign helpfully points out, walk-ins are welcome.

Reservations are preferred, but walk-ins are welcome too. I am sure they can squeeze you in.

“Hello, Bath Corner Snacks? I would like to schedule an appointment to buy some M+Ms tomorrow. Do you have an opening around 4:00? You say 5:15 is the best you can do? OK, I’ll take it. Excuse me? Why do I need proof of insurance?”




Picture Postcard: The Most Dangerous Game

Think it is easy living in the city? We have to deal with subway shutdowns, constant highway construction delays, taxes that equal the gross national product of certain small nations, rats the size of Mayor Bloomberg, Mayor Blombergs the size of midgets, and now, urban human sport-hunting.

no hunting

They hunt the Most Dangerous Game of All- sedentary apartment dwellers.

I snapped this picture myself and, ironically, this building is right next door to the 63rd precinct station house. Of course, depending on your view of the NYPD, this sign might be quite apt.

I just wonder what has been going on to make the owners put up a sign like that.
