On Broadway

I work on Broadway. Not on Broadway, but my office building is located on that street that meanders diagonally across the Manhattan grid.

Down the street from my office is a storefront that recently changed hands. The windows are all covered up with brown paper while they renovate. A couple of weeks ago, I noticed a neatly typed sign on the door:

862 Brodwey

Hmm. They can type but they can't spell.

This morning, there was a new sign on the door:

862 Broadwey

They still can't spell.

I'm putting bets on the next version being:

862 Broadwhey

I think I know why you're the Magpie now. You're a collector of bright, shiny misspellings, aren't you?

They probably sell geodes, so I'm thinkin' the store name gets fixed next.

I think it's a shoestore, selling Geox shoes.

Yes, I collect all manner of bright and shiny things. Like ribbon. I always save the ribbon from packages, and then use it again.

It may be the wine, but this made me laugh out loud!

Bubandpie (whose name, now that I think about it, is kind of similar to yours) stole what I was going to say. So I won't say anything at all.
