As I sat on my daily morning commute today on the Red Line, I noticed that 3 of the large posters that normally try to sell us everything from Foxwoods Casino to a college education to learning Swahili, were reversed so that the blank white backing was facing out. Upon two of these posters a statement was written in black marker. The first read, “Enjoy Everything.”, while the second read, “Thank you for your smile.” On the third poster, a facial profile was drawn of Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop with “The Real Folk Blues” written beneath. I was surprised not only by the sheer randomness and disappointment that noone else noticed, but also by the actual quality of the drawn profile.
Times like these make me wish I had spent a little more and gotten a cameraphone.
