Wordless Wednesday. Which Means a Post With No Words. Don't Let This Long Ass Title Fool You. Alternate Title- Car Shopping Fun

I went out car shopping with my friend Boris and we ended up in a display room with cubicles and desks but not a soul around. It was so very quiet and empty. It was as if it had been the site of an extraterrestrial visit where the aliens had scooped down and scored themselves some nice specimens of the used car salesman variety. While we stood there waiting for somebody (anybody? hello?) to help us, we noticed a display cabinet full of model cars.

The sign says, "Please! Do NOT TOUCH Display or Play With cars in it!
Thank you."

I had not even thought of playing with the cars until reading the sign that told me not to. Once the idea was planted in my mind, however, I could think of nothing else.

Must. Take. Cars. Down....
Must. Play. With. Cars...
Must. Make. Car. Sounds....
Must. Push. Cars. Around. Showroom...

We stayed in control, but it was really, really, very difficult, as you can imagine.

Haven't I built a great case for getting in a car accident? "The Rig!" "Push Button Start Rental Car!" And now this! Bet you're jealous.

Go ahead and click on the teeny envelope icon and send this post to a friend. Don't be jerky and claim that you wrote it because I wrote it, damn it.

    Oh, that's just cruel to tempt you with the li'l cars. Maybe you could steal them all and bring them over for my new Li'l People to drive.

  • Unknown Says:

    Once I read that little sign, I was instantly drawn to want to play with the cars. Then I heard myself saying "Look with our eyes not our hands." It's what I say to my kids in breakable stores. You inspired me for a post.

  • NJ Pigno Says:

    Cat Lady- Yeah. They really need to put those cars behind glass. I am not really bad ass enough to steal them, but how about we bring over your Li'l people and play with them there? If we can distract the employees. If the employees are back from their alien abduction.

    Dear Summer,

    The opposite of your saying would be "Touch with your hands, not your eyes." Also very good advice.

    A post inspired by Madame Stinglash?! I will be right over to take a look!!!

    Because little cars are not toys. They're for grown-ups to put in glass cases. Where they'll be safe from sticky little fingers.

  • Nanny Goats In Panties Says:

    Hang on...I'm confused.

    If those weren't words in your wordless post, what on earth would you call those various permutations and combinations of letters? Gardening tools?

    Or am I just being nit-picky? I think I'm being nit-picky.


  • NJ Pigno Says:

    Madame DeFarge- Like those beautiful dolls that I used to get as gifts when I was a kid that were, "Not to play with!" So cruel.

    NGIP- I haven't mastered this wordless thing yet. But see, that is what makes my wordless posts unique and worth coming back for.

    As one of your stalkers, (if your stalkers aren't creepy what are we, cuddly stalkers? Cuddly stalkers) I don't know how I missed this post. If I saw that sign, my question authority gremlins would have activated as well. They also talk like your interior monologue voice, not so much with the conversational give-and-take, but they ARE compelling. Anyhoo, where've you been. Stalkers miss you.

  • Skye Says:

    You know, that sign reminds me of something that happened when I was a kid. My mother had given us some beads to play with, they were a fair size, and told us "Don't put the beads up your nose or in your ears!" Well wouldn't you know it, but my older brother had to do exactly that! Chances are pretty good he never would of thought of it if she hadn't said anything, but she did, and so we had to go take him to the hospital to have them removed. Ah, the things people do when they're told not to...lol.

    Anyway, I have a little something for you over at my blog, Cheers :)

  • NJ Pigno Says:

    K a b l o o e y- I tend to think of my stalkers as kind of lovable. And yes, I haven't been giving them much to read lately. Life gets in the way of blogging sometimes. Funny how that happens.

    Skye- There is a poem by Carl Sandburg called- Why Did the Children Put Beans In Their Ears? Do a search for it. You will like it.

    You have something for me? I look forward to visiting and finding out.
