Miscellania Addendum

Smooth sailing so far. I remembered what I wanted to tell you about.

A couple of days ago I was at the laundromat in Lindale, Texas, doing a load. In the men's room there was a pump bottle of Family Dollar hand soap. Somebody, presumably connected to management, had scrawled on the bottle the following with a Sharpie pen:

If you steal this, we don't need your business.

I do not know why that makes me laugh, but it surely does. I am not yet a certified expert on Texas. However, I have studied it enough now to tell you that that is pluperfect Texas. I can hear the person saying it.

If you steal this, we don't need your business.

I love that! And it had worked so far obviously. That bottle was still there.
