British Sea Power

A little info up front: my parents have lived in the same house for over 20 years. Above, you'll find a pair of stickers nearly that old.

When we moved back in the late 80's, my brother and I collected baseball cards. "Horde" might be a better word. We had thousands of cards. We owned Topps, Donruss, and even Upper Deck (the Porsche of baseball trading cards).

How does this relate to the stickers on a light switch? Well, our card addiction netted us a lot of extra team stickers. We decided to distinguish the light switches in our new home with their own team stickers. I can't recall if our parents signed off on this genius plan, but I doubt it. Either way, the Mets came to symbolize the porch light, and the Dodgers the foyer. I couldn't tell you why. Dodgers don't scream foyer, but there you have it.

I found these little guys while flicking on lights today, and it made me smile. Those are some durable little stickers. Twenty years old, and still stickin'.
