whitewashed lunch specials

< Previous | Next >


Hi again!
There is sometnig, well first of quite a few things, in this story ("The House of the Two Three-legged Dogs") I can hardly work out. In the very beginning there is a passage reading: "Between the rain on the outside and the smoke and condensation inside, the Commerce window was a blur of fairy lights and whitewashed lunch specials." And it is the whitewashed lunch specials, that I fail to imagine... Could anyone help?

From Elizabeth MCCracken's "The House of the Two Three-legged Dogs"

    Words describing the lunch specials were painted on the window with whitewash. (The Commerce is a cafe.)
