You’re Dead To Me

IMG_0031I always find parking in Los Angeles stressful. From the traffic to the one way streets, I am bound to become frustrated and lost. So I was happy to find comic relief when driving in West Hollywood. A large mural of a woman crying, reminiscent of a Roy Lichtenstein painting, covers the length of a parking lot. Her speech bubble states “You’re dead to me.” While this message may not appear humorous at first glance, its placement in the parking lot provides for a more lighthearted approach to the parking struggle. This is exactly how I feel when I eventually find my destination only to discover that somebody just took the last parking spot.
