There’s a new bead store in town. It’s nicely decorated, and my favorite part is a sign on the wall:

Unattended children will be given an espresso and a free kitten.

Hard to believe they’ll survive when Hanover rents are a couple of grand a month and a beads cost a nickel or a quarter apiece. But it adds a bit of funk to the neighborhood, and that’s nice.
