The Heart Sign

She stood there outside of the building, smiling as people started towards it and then stopped in their tracks when they saw the "No Entry" signs.  They huddled among themselves, had a discussion and then they backtracked without even bothering to go around the other side of the building where "Enter Here" signs were.  Typical. …
