Sign of the day: Someone’s been reading a self-help book

I saw this sign at the Checkers on Dale Mabry, just north of Northdale last Sunday, and had to stop to take a photo of it.

In case you’re wondering, the term comes from the 1992 book The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate by Gary Chapman. Think of it as The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, but for the kind of person who re-watches Titanic and The Notebook regularly, or for couples taking premarital courses.

In the book, Chapman explains his theory that each person generally has one primary and one secondary “love language”, which is the way in which they express and experience love. Now that I’ve piqued your curiosity as to what the five love languages are, you can now rest easy that I found a nice chart that summarizes it:

May be a coincidence, but here in Cleveland, OH there’s a Rally’s (Checkers’ sibling) with the same message.
