This week I’m headed to Ohio, where anything is possible! I think that if anything is possible then it should be possible for me to visit the American Sign Museum with some of my favorite Milk Chocolate Fudge Meltaways. There’s really nothing better to melt away those New Year blues.
Tod Swormstedt has said that “signs and sign making are a fascinating reflection of America through the years.” I feel the exact same way about my chocolates so I knew I had to visit this museum. I decided to go right away when they opened so I could take my time looking at all the unique signs that have been found around America since the 1800’s. Plus, I knew that if I finished my viewing experience early I could go back through and brighten everyone’s day with some Milk Chocolate Fudge Meltaways.
Right when I walked in there was a glowing neon sign that said “don’t look behind you.” I decided to take it as a sign that I was meant to press forward, not backwards, and look at more of the amazing signs the museum had to offer. Going through the museum I saw so many signs, some of them amazing and some of them historic, some of them just downright weird.
Finally I saw a sign, well it was really more of a statue, that struck me with inspiration! It was the Frisch’s Big Boy statue rushing to give someone his delicious burger. I knew then that I should take the Big Boy as my mascot and start giving all my friends in the museum a delicious Milk Chocolate Fudge Meltaway.
I ran through the neon lit signs of the museum, talking to my museum friends and giving them some tasty chocolate. I met a young man and woman who were there for their honeymoon. Their names were Greg and Stacey.
“Cincinnati seems like a strange place for a honeymoon,” I said to them.
“Well, it seemed like the perfect place to come, because we love signs,” Stacey replied, with stars in her eyes.
“Yeah, we actually met because we were both trying to collect the same sign!” Greg said enthusiastically.
“That’s really unique,” I replied, “would you like some Milk Chocolate Fudge Meltaways to celebrate your marriage?”
“Thanks Jim, that would be delicious,” said Stacey.
I was so glad I made some new friends and helped them to celebrate their honeymoon in the place where anything is possible.
