Or, How to Lactate in Style
Despite the unconventional spurting, it wasn’t because of the breasts that I gleefully sent the above photo to my design team back at New Ravenna in Exmore, VA via I-phone with the caption “dirty mermaid”. Actually, no. It was because this year we made a mosaic sample of a Starbucks logo. We noticed that the older mermaid logos had two tails, but that the newer logos camouflage them. We had several memorable conversations about the Starbucks logo transformation, and thus nicknamed the two-tailed mermaids “dirty mermaids”. Dirty, we mean, in only the best possible way, as in, they have more fun.
Although it’s hard to imagine having more fun than I did, surrounded, in Italy, by people that I love.
P.S. For amusing illustrations and commentary on the Starbucks logo evolution, see this article on the subject.
