solace of acne

ok.. so, [hysterical] {miss-read} sign by el fano - in my mind as I am driving off miracle mile, and into coral way, [just before little havana] ... there is a ACNE medical center... and [for the life of me] I could have SWORN [brush/bushes/parked cars aside] that the sign read "SOLACE OF ACNE" [and I laughed with such laughter] {thinking this could be the title of my book} its like to perfect and funny and makes no sense! [ha] .. but, it was "SOLUTIONS FOR ACNE" [in spanish of course] .. and my entire dream went by the way-side :( .. but, in my mind, it will always be SOLACE OF ACNE! :-) [it was my fun "landmark" before I turned left [a very SHARPl left] lol

OK!! sooo.. just before you get into downtown Miami [and from Little Havana to the hospital] there is a road/draw-bridge - {you know} to let all the fancy yachts go down this tiny tiny tiny river [i was in shock and awe!] HUGE [and i mean HUGE boats coming and going, {in what looked like a tiny wading pool}] HA!... but, ok, the road is/was/is SO THICK.. it amazes me [every day] when it shoots up to a 90-degree angle! Like WOAH! this is AMAZING! [and it makes me start to think about hydrolics and stuff] and then I just loose myself in my own mind, cuz its all un-familiar-territory to me! [HA] but still fun to watch and take a picture of!

and then.. OK so this HAS TO BE my favourite store in all of Little Havana! [like 4-serious] ... CHINA MAN DISCOUNTS is like a 99cent dream store, that serves you BEER when you walk in the door in tiny dixe-cups!! and the crazy-spanish dude is dressed up like like the "ASIAN-[oh so wrong]-ICON" on his sign! He has a glued on mustache! He has on a huge rice-field hat.. and drew lines in his forehead with some kind of sharpie, and yells at everyone [in a spanish/chinese insane accent] to BUY BUY BUY and don't forget BEER BEER BEER! omg! i tried to take his picture, but he got really angry with me, and I didn't want to be BANNED from the store! [ha] so... you'll just have to trust me on this one.. [HE NEEDS/SHOULD be in a MOVIE!!] :-) I can't wait to go back, and get more crazy-fun 99cent items [but more so just to watch and observe in amazement!!!] xo xo :el fano:
