STICKER SHOCK AT 7TH AND MONTANA ...!

It was a bad case of Sticker Shock at 7th and Montana this morning as an Anonymous Newcomer, a woman known only as "The Stickler," made the scene.  At first, I thought she was a Kindergarten Teacher based on the fact that she was carrying an armload of colorful stickers that would be the envy of any five-year-old.  Hello Kitty, Winnie the Pooh, The Little Mermaid, Assorted Stars and Smileys ... you name it, she had it on a roll of stickers.  It wasn't until she pulled out a notebook and began slowly, painstakingly covering each page with stickers that I knew something was wrong.  Every so often she would stop, examine a page and write something in the margins with all the intensity of a Neurosurgeon performing a Craniotomy.  Unlike most Neurosurgeons, however, she used Pink and Purple ink.  I left quickly, before she could dot any of her i's with a heart ...!

"It wasn't until she pulled out a notebook and began slowly, painstakingly covering each page with stickers that I knew something was wrong."  Sums it up!
