As I was driving by yet another panhandler on the side of the road today, I was struck by his sign and then I started to chuckle. No, it wasn't funny that he was supposedly homeless or crippled or in dire straights, but it was something that my 7 yr old said to me in the car a few months ago, that really brings up an interesting question.
She said, "Mommy, if they are homeless, where do they get the markers to make their signs?"
Excellent question. Has anyone else ever wonder about that?
