Happy

Happy

I ran into a moderately busy street to take this photo. (with extreme caution, Mom.)

But it was worth it to get a shot of these bulbous bubble letters. I like the combination of kind of caring plus not caring at all. Someone kind of cared, when they took the trouble to use some sort of stencil. But the caring wore thin on a few letters… like the M. Did they really forget about that one until last? Did they try to spell “MENU” as “ENU”??? I don’t understand.

This mixed message reminds me a bit of “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, which has to be the angriest, least-convincing song about claiming to be happy that I have ever heard.
