Guys…there’s like 30 cm of snow in Toronto today.
It all began yesterday. It was just snowing, but my friends and coworkers already named it “snowmageddon.” Cute.
Being from a town north of Toronto, I was already used to huge snowfall. It really wasn’t a big deal to me. In fact, I like snow! Everything moves slower and I feel like I’m in one of those cheesy rom com movies. I’m in a coffee shop. A handsome stranger with dark brown hair and chocolatey brown eyes is standing in line, waiting for his coffee. I’m furiously typing away at my computer. We lock eyes. He smiles. I smile. He picks up his coffee and walks over to me. “Is this seat taken?” I shake my head ‘no’ vigourously, hoping he’ll sit down. He takes the chair and moves it to the table beside me, where a cute blonde is waiting.
I called in sick yesterday, and took today off. Clever me! I’ve spent the entire day whimsically wandering around the city. I brewed some black tea with a dash (or two) of amaretto and poured it into my Hello Kitty mug, and off I went.
It might be the amaretto talking, but…this day is amazing. This is probably, by far, the best day I’ve had this year. People are nicer because nobody is really in a hurry to get anywhere. Wait a minute…most people are at work! Maybe this is what Toronto looks like during weekday work hours? Then, come 5 o’clock, all of us bitter cretins get off work and turn Toronto into a miserable hole.
Another thing, it’s not as crowded as it usually is. People are either at work or at home, avoiding the weather. I like this version of Toronto.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are!
