Had a biz meeting in a local restaurant. Noticed that there was a painted-on window treatment above the big picture windows. You know... fake, painted valences. It occurred to me that "valence" and "painted" are words that do not get together often.Â This restaurant had another couple fun painted, atmospheric effects, including a painted-on fireplace and bookshelf.
Which prompted the thought, "I hope the urinals are not trompe-l'oeil."
Words that don't get together much: "urinal" and "trompe-l'oeil."
Probably a good thing.
