Shiny and New Jersey
Greetings from a slow scab internet connection in beautiful Hackensack, Newish Jersey. I didn't bring my camera with me, but I think what North Carolina needs to learn from New Jersey is the importance of shiny diners. We have restaurants, we even have diners, but we don't have shiny diners and that's a shame. There needs to be an element of traffic hazard in food options. And nothing says "good food" inside like chrome plating. I like to think that before installation, these diners were dipped into a vat of chromic acid and electroplated, then lifted up by a crane to be placed within inches of a major roadway. And you can check your hair before entering. Hair is not allowed to be out of place in New Jersey, but that's OK, most shiny diners have pomade stations immediately upon entry.
