I have to hand it to my American friends. They definitely have a way with signs.
I was just trying to stay between the lines on a curvy road when I was abruptly informed that my life’s journey would be hitting a difficult patch. I believe the words they used had something to do with a rough break in the future.
Now I’m not sure if they were referring to not finding wildlife that day, a flat tire or poor weather but I appreciated the gesture. A little warning helps a lot to prepare for the difficult times that sometimes come our way.
It turned out there were a few rough breaks since I passed that sign but I’m happy to report that I haven’t encountered any more signs like it. I think that must mean it’s all good news in the future. Then again I have been travelling in Canada where our signs tend to be a lot more directive and far less insightful.
For example, there is a sign in northern Saskatchewan that offers advice in the whole area of relationships. It succinctly directs people to Love 1. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that the sign is located one kilometre from the small village named Love.
I wonder if the Americans have any signs that predict good things are going to happen in the near future? It would be a nice touch, especially for visitors.
