It's going on my office door, and on it, I'll write:
Triumph Communications is...
and then fill in the blank with "open" or "closed" depending on the time of day.
It'll help everyone in my household live a little longer, I think. These precious people have no idea whether the faraway look in my eyes is me trying to grasp an elusive headline for a client's copy, or me wondering whether I remembered to thaw out something for dinner. No wonder they interrupt! This way, if they see that my office is open, they'll understand someone better be bleeding (and I'm not talking a drop or two... it better be a gusher) if they come in. : )
PLUS, when the sign says "closed" it'll be my reminder to go get a life!! : )
