Signs. Funny, poignant, symbolic, incorrect, informative, foreshadowing … there are so many signs in the world.
One of my favorite places to get poutine—a Quebec dish made with french fries, topped with brown gravy and cheese curds—is a fantastic family-owned restaurant called Grégoire.
Funny thing though, at the entrance to Grégoire is a conspicuous sign:
- VÊTEMENT OBLIGATOIRE S.V.P
Translated, this means, “Clothing mandatory please.” Wonder what prompted that signage!
“PROPRIÉTE PRIVÉE. DÉFENSE DE PASSER” translated “PRIVATE PROPERTY. DON’T TRESPASS…” anytime someone tells me “DON’T” I get tempted. I swear the geese at this farmhouse were beckoning me to come play. No worries, I didn’t break any laws.
