Trying to work in a little last-minute resale shopping before Christmas, photographer Sarah Lipscomb spots a few signs that some desirable hardware is missing in Montrose:
My mom and I were on our way to the Guild Shop the other day and I noticed a couple of multi colored signs posted just before the Fiesta on Dunlavy. The first one says â€œWHY CANâ€™T YOU LOVE MEâ€ the next one â€œLIKE l LOVE YOU?â€ I thought this was curious, my mom didnâ€™t notice and we kept driving. We get to the Guild and it was closed for Christmas so we turned right on Welch and headed to the Blue Bird (our second choice in Resale shops.) I then see two more signs. The first one says â€œI WANT A ROCK HARDâ€ next one â€œSIX PACKâ€ Now I am getting really interested . . .
I try to explain it to my mom she still doesnâ€™t get it and we turn right on Commonwealth. There at the corner of Commonwealth and Fairview I see 3 more signs.
1. â€œI REALLY REALLY WANTâ€ 2. â€œa 15 inchâ€ 3.â€œ MAC Book Proâ€ I tell my mom this is a feminine art statement worthy of being carried out by the likes of our very own Laura Lark or maybe an imposter like that Lana Lank out of San Antonioâ€¦
On Christmas Day, Lipscomb returns with a friend to photograph more signs, but these are all she finds. They put together a map. And Lipscomb comments:
I sure can appreciate the effort on the signs and I couldnâ€™t agree more on what she really really wants. I want the same things, but the tragic part is even if we post signs right in front of your house you men still donâ€™t get it. Women have many talents- one is we can read your mind. Men on the other hand canâ€™t even read the signs we put right in front of them. How do we get the man to get the message? Or should we just stop trying?
