The Writing on the Wall

The Wisdom of my Parking Garage

Originally uploaded by tjbax.

I park on the bottom floor of my parking garage, mostly because the asshats in SUVs insist on jamming their urban assault vehicles into all the compact car spaces on the level nearest the street. (Note to SUV drivers- the sacrifice I make for driving a Beetle is lack of cargo room, but I gain the ability to park in teeny tiny spaces. You get cargo room in exchange for not being able to park wherever you want. Your Escalade is NOT compact.)

But I park near this inscription a lot. It says, “BEDROCK 25 1/2 inches LOT OF WATER.”

Why yes, 25 1/2 inches of water in the parking garage is indeed a lot of water. How perceptive. And thanks for informing the rest of us who may not have known…
