It's homecoming week on campus. Starting tomorrow, there won't be any legal parking near my office as a result. They've set up huge pavillions on the lawn outside of my office window (and on just about every other scrap of spare grass on campus). These pavillions are white tops with four supporting poles that are open on all four sides. And each and every one of them has two EXIT signs posted on either side of the pavillion. Apparently you can walk in from any side, but if you're gonna exit, it better be from one of the two facing sides. I don't know why this struck me as so funny on my walk in to the office this morning. I'm sure it's the result of legislation and litigation run amuck. I'm sure the exit signs are there for legal reasons, but it's not like it's a room! There are no walls! It's just a shade covering. Oy.
