Truly My Love

Graffiti

So this is the graffiti on the wall of the ladies bathroom in Barnes and Noble. 


My wife said to make sure everyone knows that she took the photo and not me (uh, that would be awkward). 


I can’t make out all the graffiti on the wall, but the one in the center says:


“True love isn’t something made up in stories or books. It exists truly, if you believe truly, and truly fight for it. Real love is magic.”


Another one talks about “Gonzales” who is the most beautiful man.


And yet one more…


“I wish I knew how to tell my boyfriend I love him.”


Let me just be frank that the Graffiti in men’s bathrooms is nothing, nothing like this. 


It’s more obscene, uses lots of 4 letter words, and has women’s first names and phone numbers. 


Why do women write and profess their love for men on bathroom walls, while men seem to think and express themselves in far more graphic terms–and why do this while in the stinkin’ bathroom?


I think this may make for some interesting gender studies for someone out there. 


From a technology perspective, I think if people are going to insist on thinking and fantasizing in the public bathroom, perhaps we need some white boards or monitors that you can write and erase from–that way at least we can make room for the next guy/gal to write their truly’s next. 😉
