While out and about today, I noticed some conspicuous advertising. I posted this first on my personal blog, but when I realized that I had a picture that included attorney Russ Whitener on it, I needed to post this here on Duke City Fix, too.
I'm still in Albuquerque, as I've noted previously, and thus I missed out on what could have been my first ever experience of an earthquake
. I called up a good friend of mine there when I heard about it, and she was like, "Ho hum, the ground shook a bit, but it wasn't anything to write home about. Good times." I'm sure had I been there myself, I would have completely exaggerated the whole event in my head, and convinced myself that the ground shook so much it knocked me on my ass. But I wasn't there, and so am still left without ever experiencing such a natural phenomenon.
What I did get to do today, though, was go out to lunch
. Robert and I met up with a friend of ours neither of us had seen in far too long. When you meet up at 11:30 and don't leave until 2:30, you know you've had a nice time.
At some point during the meal, I had to excuse myself to use the restroom. And, awkward as it is to admit this, I couldn't resist taking a picture of something that caught my eye while there. Ever heard of Johnny Boards
? Basically, the concept is that an ideal placement for advertisements is in a place people always have to go: the John.
Normally, I don't think much of it, but today was a different story. It pretty much speaks for itself.
And I think it definitely merited taking a picture in the restroom. Just saying.
