Like Old Times

I was at UMSL yesterday, and was caught by surprise when I walked into their instrument storage locker room:

UMSL Band Locker Room

I felt like I was stepping into a time warp, as I looked at the floor and saw the exact same linoleum as what we had in our kitchen in my house growing up.

I can still remember playing with Matchbox cars on the floor, using the spaces between the “tiles” as roads, and the areas around the round designs like roundabouts.

Growing up surrounded by flooring like that, is it any sense that my interior design sense is nearly impeccable?

I was practicing in a storage room at work the other day, and during a break, I happened to glance over and see this against the wall:

A closer look revealed this:

Good to know that warning labels go well-heeded.
