Today as I exited the freeway, I saw the ubiquitous on ramp/exit ramp beggar. He was holding a hot pink sign. As I drew near and stopped beside him, he asked “What the (expletive deleted here)did you take my picture for?” I noted the sign was a garage sale sign for this coming weekend. Not my battle. I lose enough of my own signs. “Have a nice (expletive deleted) day” I said and drove off as the poor soul attempted to kick the side of my truck.
So this did bring to mind the beauty of that hot pink color. I have decided it is better than orange for that extra glow from a distance. I use it for my arrows and the borders on some signs. It jumps out nicely. The craft/art paper is all the rage for garage sales of late and apparently for asshole beggars as well. But that paper is a bit too wobbly and in the wind does not hold up. Either a backing or something is needed when a full sheet is used.
Also, wear surgical gloves when spraying because eventually that paint will be coating your finger tips from the spray nozzle on the can. I would have returned to offer advice to the beggar, but I was in a hurry.
