Driving through Siler City North Carolina last week I passed what I thought were a bunch of rugs hanging against a van, displayed for sale at $35 apiece.
It turns out they were bedspreads. Crazy velvet bedspreads.
"They're beautiful, aren't they?" the sales woman asked as I started snapping pictures. "Some of them are double sided."
"What's on the back of this one?" I asked, pointing to a blanket picturing two tigers ... hanging out on an asteroid near the moon?
"Zebra stripes," she replied.
In hindsight, it was a stupid question.
