Walking from their car to the front door of the Circuit City on San Felipe, Bunny Bungalow resident Annie Sitton and her husband notice a crack in the stucco covering a pilaster at the front of the building. Looking closer, they notice that . . .
The crack has been “repaired” . . . with electrical tape!
And then it’s as if an entire universe of knock-knock-joke equivalents has opened up:
The irony makes us giddy. We play the game of “what if…” as we shop: “What if this were a grocery store; what would they have used to repair the crack? Frozen pie dough;” “A dental clinic? The work would be perfect but the building owner would have to take out a second mortgage to pay for the repair;” and so on.
