Sign Language

Thought for the day: "There are two kinds of people who never amount to much: those who cannot do what they are told, and those who can do nothing else."- Cyrus Curtis

Remember the last time I wrote about hilarious signs seen in and around Dubai? Like, there was:

- Baby Sitting In Karama.(Each word on a separate line)
- Hair cut, baby cut, Dhadi(beard) cut(At a barber’s shop- in price list)
- Female bed spacers required(This is a common one. What happens is that people give out rooms for rent, and, it’s just bedspace, in the true sense of the word,with barely any,err, room in the room left).

Any guesses as to where I spotted these, and what they stand for?

- Men’s glouse
- Men’s shots(And,there’s an arrow pointing straight)
(If you comprehend them, you deserve to be here)
What do you think of the captions for this week? Here
Having become something of a poem reader,after reading so many nice ones on blogs, here's one I received from a group which i joined:

Poem of the month

Sixty-Seven Years by Ruth Bavetta

and I’ve understood nothing
except the stretched weight of summer nights,
the burn of the sun at four o’clock,
the shadows of the eucalyptus,
the indifference of rain.
I wait for clouds to arrive from the west,
for my teeth, hair, skin,bones, fingernails to thin;
and the sky smells of melting candles
and the trees are still.

(From: The Goodreads team)
On to the end jokes:
Badd Teddy recently explained to me why he refuses to get to married.He says "the wedding rings look like minature handcuffs...
A couple came upon a wishing well. The husband leaned over, made a wish and threw in a coin .The wife decided to make a wish, too. But she leaned over too much, fell into the well, and drowned. The husband was stunned for a while but then smiled " It really works ! "
(There,Shreya-how's that for simple jokes??)
