More Humor From the Recession

So we went for a walk in the new Morro Bay. Boy has it been gentrified! New houses, new shops, everything redone. Our last visit was over 7 years ago, and the place had that special kooky northern California vibe. Individualistic, crusty, slightly seedy, authentic. Now it beams success.

We were looking in the thrift shops- themselves a far cry from secondhand stores, more boutiques than Goodwill. It was 4:50. As we entered the last shop remaining open, the proprietess told us "Sorry, I am closing.". We thought it odd to close in a customer's face 10 minutes before closing, but maybe business is good here?
