a couple of bits of amusement this afternoon

While walking up the aisle in Jordan Hall during the intermission of a very nice piano concert (Alexander Kobrin playing Haydn, Mozart, Brahms, and Schumann (and some Chopin as encores)) I espied this book sitting on a seat:
On Kissing, Tickling and Being Bored

I couldn't read the rest of the front cover but looking it up it also says:
Psychoanalytic Essays on the Unexamined Life which is also kind of interesting when you think about what is an Unexamined Life?

Then out in the corridor - Jordan Hall is a concert hall in the New England Conservatory of Music - I espied the following sign on a door:
Warning: Use This Door
for Entering and Exiting Only

I suppose this is because many of the other doors have lots of things posted on them so this is a clever Post No Bills sign.
