Figure This One Out
Unfortunately, this time I didn't have my camera on my hip, but I did write down what the sign said. Let me set the scene. I was in front of a very nice store that sold western-style bridal gowns and other items for a wedding, including favors and flowers.
This was the sign over the door to the shop.
VERTICAL BRIDAL SHOP
I asked everyone who spoke English to tell me what they thought it meant. I had several very "clever" answers, none of which were right. It wasn't until I came home and talked to some Chinese-American students that I "got" it.
Do you "get" it?
