Mutual Hallucination

“Let’s stop at that quilt shop up the road here!” AdventureMan exclaimed, sounding a lot more enthusiastic than I suspected he felt.

“I don’t know,” I reply, “it looked a little junky. I’m not sure it was even open.”

“It IS open!” he was delighted as we approached.

We drove in, and peered through the windows. It didn’t look like a quilt shop. It looked like a rickety tickety oyster bar of some kind, the kind of place we might love, if we were hungry, but not a quilt shop at all.

We looked again at the sign:


We had both read it as “Quilts Too” but it was something else entirely. I guess we saw what we expected to see.
