Only in Chinatown

Houston 003
“DONOT EAT THE AIR FRESHENER”

Does that look like something you would eat? (Well, I suppose in Chinatown, anything goes.)

I’m in Houston this weekend for my mom’s birthday. What are y’all up to?

  1. It looks like jelloooooooooo, and I wish I were in Chinatown with you guys…

  2. Uh…true confessions:

    When I lived in Taiwan, I literally ate some potpourri. I thought it was cinnamon candy. That sign was probably a direct result of me.

  3. Albie-
    I wish you were too!

    K. Marie-
    ZOMG that is HILARIOUS!!!! I just lol-ed for realz.

  4. My sister-in-law had a green version hanging around and my son, three at the time, went right for it. He was convinced! Luckily, my wife was too quick for him to sample it. :)

  5. haha that totally ruins the air freshener by putting a sign on it. but… i wouldn’t put it past some people to think it’s candy. i’m sure a lot of kids have learned the hard way.

  6. i don’t think they actually learn, though… play-doh, crayon, and glue really do NOT taste that good, but they continue to eat them anyway!

  7. this is *awesome*

  8. That’s hilarious. They must have had an incident with a little kid.

  9. Scott-
    I guess a sign like this wouldn’t really help deter a child. :P

    Mandy-
    Yeah, they don’t worry about aesthetics so much in Chinatown, lol.

    Albie-
    Good point.

  10. Those are cute plants! Anyway, sometimes some people need reminders…

  11. Hey Young One. I’m getting around to reading blogs, which is not something I have been able to do for a couple weeks straight.

    Have a great trip home and be thankful it is your mom and not mine you are visiting ; -)

  12. Maddy-
    Yep, it never hurts to reinforce common sense. ;P

    Pseudo-
    Haha, thanks, will do.
