My favorite sign ever was painted on a shop window in Canterbury, England. It said, “Sex Aids for Ferrets!” Only upon drawing nearer did I see the small print beneath that read, “Not really, but we do have some great deals on guitars.” Two of my favorite things in one place: guitars and British wit! I hurried in. Some signs inform us, some misinform us, but the best signs restore our faith in humanity by reminding us that as long as we have hope, love, and sarcasm we’ll get by.
