Read the Sign

When I was in Sweden, I took pictures of a sign. On one side, there was this:



Sure, it’s saying: children, do not look both ways, run across the street from your home to greet the adult. That’s standard. But then, on the OTHER SIDE OF THE SAME SIGN, there’s this:


Now you’re saying DON’T run across the street? Or maybe do look both ways? Or maybe don’t run across streets toward random adults? Or maybe this is saying there is no nearby house? What does this mean!?

Attn: Ellen (11/2/11)


Back (apologies for my handwriting!)

The text of the postcard is:

Dear Ellen,

Malmo, in Sweden, is great. Unfortunately I ruined the day by constantly suggesting we head to Norway.


Well, I really wanted to go to a Burger King in Norway and say, “have it Norway.”

Honestly how could I not want to do that?
