well it's come to this
Don't panic friends in the south! This sign posted on my door does not mean alcohol free zone! No, no no!
Since I have moved to my tree house apartment, the door has been rattled at any hour for the call of the bottle. Seems the previous tenants were bootleggers. Now in a dry town, there will be good money to be made bootlegging and many people seem to have the entrepreneurial spirit. Unfortunately when you take over tenancy in a former bootleggers homestead you run the risk of or depending on your own entrepreneurial spirit, the option of having a ready made business.
Having turned many a potential customer away I have decided to save everyone the trouble and post a sign. The best part is; I had asked a co-worker to help me translate so that all comers would be able to understand. I had in mind a French, English, Inuktitut sign. Taadaaa! This is her translation. Now why didn't I think of that?
