I have been working on an actual literarily related post that’s really long and complicated and totally not done, and now I don’t have time to work on it. But I also haven’t posted in ages, and that leaves a void in my life, so here’s a few funny things people have said and done in my proximaty lately:

My yoga teacher: “Just let your tongue sort of hang out in the centre of your mouth.”

Well-dressed middle-aged woman at bus stop, after asking me directions to a place she had only a number for, but did not know what street that number was supposed to be on: stuck her finger directly (and far!) up her nose while listening to my baffled reply.

Teenaged girl I eavesdropped on at Starbucks while she was talking to a male friend: (repeatedly) “I know I’m not, like, ugly or anything, but I just don’t think I’m *that* pretty.”

I heart this town. Especially now that is not 10 000 degrees. More soon!

    What do you bet that teenaged girl had recently googled “How to get your boyfriend to call you pretty?”

    i am overwhelmed with great things done by random people on the street in front of me this week. example: japanese kid walking down jasper ave wearing t-shirt with exciting lettering, spelling: ‘Michael Jackson! King of Pops!!’

    I think everyone should send me the most amusing things they’ve witnessed in the last little while. This would be great for Rose-coloured morale!

  • Scott Watson says:

    I find that I have witness many amusing moments since I started commuting with my child. Babies bring out the odd in people.

  • Rebecca says:

    Scott, share the oddness! Also, have you gotten Z a job in logistics, too?

  • Scott Watson says:

    Zoe has shown no interest in Retail operations, apparently getting her cue from the mainstream culture. :)
    Her day care is on the way to my work so I complete the drop-off and pick up. The oddness is mostly the making of faces, silly voices, and arm flailing that adults do to the amusement of children. I can’t complain because it makes the commute much easier.
