Monkey See, Monkey Design a Space Back-Asswards*

Now I don't want to get off on another rant here, which is good, because it is Tuesday and if I continue to rant at this pace, I'm going to run out of things to say before S.H.I.T arrives.

As my esteemed colleague has taken to doing in these pages, I'm going to give a shout out to Summers. Summers, in my humble opinion, is not the worst designed place ever.

Granted, it is designed in the shape of a big giant U which is like the least effective shape for a bar ever, but it is not nearly as bad as the Giant Food Store at the north end of Old Town. It is designed in the shape of a giant F, and only dreams of being a U. But as it stands, the aisles extend all the way from the front of the store to the back. And the aisles are narrow. You can't squeeze by anybody, you have to back up all the way down the aisle.

Kind of like when you see Mya is working the bar.

You don't make eye contact, you don't turn around for fear your movement will draw her attention, you just back straight up and slide on out the door.

  1. Might I humbly suggest that you find a detachable basket for your bicycle. Walking down the aisles instead of pedaling would create a lot more space for the other customers, and your attorney could probably rest easier too.
