(I must have been in some kind of late night stupor (NOT induced by beer) when I posted this on T2T instead of on its sister blog. A new post — about a milder beverage altogether — will replace this one shortly. But I’m not above taking advantage of possible serendipity from my own mistakes, so if you don’t know A View from the Woods, wander on over and — enjoy the View!)
Are windows to see through? To see in? To see out? Not necessarily. These windows are to sell through: windows as sales tools!
As often when I go to the liquor store, a question arises in my mind, a snatch of poetry from long ago:
And much as Wine has played the Infidel,
And robbed me of my Robe of Honor Well,
I often wonder what the Vintners buy
One half so precious as the stuff they sell.
Rubayiat of Omar Khayyam, translated by Edward Fitzgerald
Or, as humor columnist Dave Barry has said, less poetically but just as pointedly:
Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza.
