Kevin came across the Fail Blog recently and found this picture of the Spankme Building in San Mateo. Clover's first French teacher had an office there where she held a nighttime Christmas performace. Once at the building, I remember giving Kevin directions from my cell phone, "It's in the (whisper) Spankme Building." Kevin couldn't hear me, so he kept saying, "the what?" Through gritted teeth, I kept saying "the Spankme Building," while trying to keep my voice low. In a way, I made myself look worse, all huddled in a corner, eventually spitting "SPANKME!" into a cell phone.
The building's right around the corner from the amazing Sibby's cupcakes, and when I drive by twice a year or so, I always cringe.
