Summer is here, the torrid heat has arrived and among other things, I need a shade to protect the family from the heat creeping through the windows.
So I am off to the hardware store to get a cloth. I’m not above making my own, but I need the raw materials. To this end, I went to the supply store and was going down the line.
When I arrive and look at the rolls of material, each one a different color, some black, some dark green, others a sandy color. There is another gentleman there with a sales person who is explaining about the advantages of each. The customer describes the corner of his house that he wants shaded, the measurements and the anchor areas.
I was eavesdropping and learning, too. Take full advantage of the information and all. Y’know?
Then this exchange happened and I just left. Unable to grasp how we got to this point in our evolution.
“You need a right angle shade, right here in this package.”
“But, the house angle there is a left angle, not a right.”
I am worried about the human race.
