On weekends I like to mix up the format a bit. Enjoy!
Today I bring you a few Seattle details. I love the way that certain coffee shops and restaurants mark the doors to the bathrooms. The place I’m currently at has photos of old men and women on the respective doors. Another shop in my neighborhood has taken Mattel’s darlings of yesterday, Ken and Barbie, and changed them a bit. “Kenneth” marks the men’s room, and he’s all glittered and spangled, and “Barb” ushers the women in with her short haircut and manly attire. This certainly beats the markings on the fabulous pie shop I went to in Wisconsin. The restaurant is called The Norske Nook, and everything inside is Norwegian. This includes the words on the restroom doors. I had to ask the server which one was for women. There’s fun cute, and then there’s cute which impedes understanding. I’ll stick with Kenneth and Barb.
