A couple of things after I sent last night’s e-mail…
First of all I forgot to mention a sign that we kept seeing in South Dakota. It was for Dicks Auto and Truck Service (or at least I think that’s what it was) and, on the sign, it said 24 HOUR TOE SERVICE. Really!!?? We laughed about it each time we saw it, but after I started thinking about it, I may have pre-judged what I saw. It could have been one of three things.
1) It could have been that Dick had his pre-school child help him with the ad copy and might have used crayons and construction paper.
2) It could have been a stroke of advertising genius. Spell a word incorrectly and people will not only remember it, but tell all their friends about it. If this is the case, it worked.
3) Dick could be a Podiatrist who lost his medical license due to Medicare fraud and resorted to auto and truck repair, the job that got him through med school, and actually does toe service on the side. Diane…want his number??
Some people find the toes erotic, and I suppose there’s an outside chance that he has a back room brothel where they do your toes for 24 hours. I think that idea has just a smidgen above zero possibility. Looking back at my younger, best days, 24 hours of anything isn’t even a remote possibility.
Secondly, the room and the shower in last night’s motel was much better. Although, the shower head was a little loose and squirted water everywhere until I tightened it. Also, it atomized the water, but kept it in the shower enclosure. The one negative thing was that the shower water created a slight vaccuum in the enclosure, so the shower curtain kept clinging to my wet body, which made it hard to lather up. For a couple of you, get your mind out of the gutter. We didn’t pick up any bimbos last night, so it’s the only thing that clung to my wet body!
