The Marquee, or, The Taco Joint Part II

I like The Taco Joint, not because it has a four-foot by six-foot marquee out front in the parking lot, but because The Taco Joint staff slides the black vinyl letters across its plastic yellow face until their composition has exhausted the range of punctuation that comes in the set and what it is left is an urgent announcement, wholly unrelated to the Tuesday lunch special or the menu item called The Disaster. Tomorrow it will say something else, but today it is perfection:

LADIES, IT'S TRUE:
CHUCK HAS A NEW HAIRCUT
AND IT IS BREATHTAKING!
