What is the sound of one hand clapping? Why do you drive on a parkway and park on a driveway? Can you ever reach the horizon?
These are the questions are posed by our mysterious universe. And lately, Pasadena residents have been faced with another, new Universal Paradox: why is there a furniture store on Colorado Boulevard which appears to be closing right away, and yet never closes?
No doubt you have seen this metaphysical wonder, a.k.a. Nest Furnishings on 660 E. Colorado Blvd. You may have noticed the subtle messaging with which they have announced that the store will be closing “soon”…
These signs have been up since the fall of 2010. What is the definition of “soon”? In historical terms, “soon” may mean centuries. In geological terms, it may mean millions of years. So really, this isn’t just another shady furniture store abusing it’s customers with a deceptive sales message, right? Right?
But who cares. Not you, anyway. Real Pasadena Snobs like us only buy our furniture at Fedde’s, anyway.
