005: Bumper car
I have walked in this street countless times, when I got out of the bus on my way to the high school. Eventually I went to school by bike. This street is rather quiet, with many residential homes and a number of shops, including a bike shop, where I was a frequent customer to have my bike repaired. However, time flies, and when I returned to this street about 25 years later, in 2010, I noticed many changes. One of the new shops was this car electronics shop. A bright yellow bumper car stood in front of it, on the sidewalk. Undoubtedly, this bumper car is an eyecatcher, but what has it do deal with car alarm? This bumper car won’t move, and won’t be easily stolen. Another question raised when I observed the line: ‘No eggs for breakfast.’ Is the owner of this shop complaining that he cannot afford a complete breakfast?
