I have to apologize, because this really isn’t nearly as interesting as the title makes it seem. I was waiting in line at the Starbucks near my work the other day when I noticed a thread of cloth caught at the apex of the ‘A’ in the ‘STARBUCKS’ over the counter. I reached up to pull it off and was told off because the last time someone touched the sign they had to shut the shop until they cleaned the dust from the food equipment. Good stuff.
Anyway, I couldn’t help wondering how this little thread got there, and I imagined one of the builders when they were constructing the place bending over on the top of the ladder, catching himself on the newly-hung sign, and voilà. I also wondered why no one had ever noticed it before.
I’m afraid I don’t have a picture of it to share, so instead here’s a kitten drinking an iced tea.
Cook. Yes, that sounds about right.
