Odd photo (Or: Busted gas station sign)

Sunday morning I went to Shoprite to pick up some necessary supplies. I returned sweating and pretty tired. Silly heat!

But on the way, I came across an odd sight:

I really have no idea what ran into this sign, as I couldn’t find any news piece about it. However, I did find it interesting that the top of the pole was bent slightly to the right. Perhaps something came and hit the top of the sign but did not manage to damage the bottom of the pole that much.

To me it kind of looks like someone put a small bomb inside the sign and set it off.

Number of days (straight) I have studied Dutch: 9. Time flies when you’re having fun!

I did find out that the Internet Polygot app (Apple | Android) does have a small quirk: there are lessons available to learn vocabulary, like dieren (animals). However, only the lessons that you have opened previously while you had an active Internet connection will work if you find yourself without an Internet connection. So I spent a few minutes opening up all of the lessons to make sure I have access to all of them later on, since I use an iTouch. (Note: after re-reading the app’s page, I do see that they mentioned this.)

  1. Nikki, I am simply going to have to take a page from your book and take a camera with me all the time. Virginia

    • Well I usually have my iTouch with me since I am listening to music… although that does mean that the pictures are a bit lesser quality unfortunately. 😉
