- Firda: “Hmm, which pants to wear today?”
- Troy: “A new one!”
- Firda: “But I’ve got THREE new pants. THREE!”
- Troy: “THREE new pants? Who deserves THREE new pants?!?”
- Firda: “Me?”
- Troy: “That’s true.”
Firda: “Drew was my apartment crush.”
Troy: “You’re really attracted to unattainable men, aren’t you?”
Firda: “But he was so dreamy…”
Drew lived on the top floor of our apartment building back when we still lived in Waterloo. He always looked dapper and he had a great smile. One winter during a blizzard, Troy helped him get his car out of the apartment’s parking lot so he could rescue his boyfriend whose car was stuck in a ditch somewhere. The next day, he came over to our apartment to say thanks and gave Troy a thank you card and a Tim Horton’s gift card. So nice! Wish we had been friends.
Tickets to Iceland: BOUGHT!!! No turning back now. We’ll be in Iceland for 15 days. That’s like half a month, you guyz! We’ll come home speaking Icelandic (not!). It’s going to be fun. I’m beyond excited!
Have picked the date we’re leaving for Iceland as well as the date of the flight home. We’ll be in Iceland for two weeks in May and we’ll try see as much of Iceland as we possibly can. Haven’t booked anything yet because I’m still trying to figure out our itinerary. We’re going to try to make it as far north as the Arctic Circle. It’s November already and time is beginning to fly! Suddenly May doesn’t seem too far away anymore.
On the Highway 401, driving home from an overnight stay in an Eastern Ontario town by the St. Lawrence River. Hurricane Sandy’s remnants are looming.
Troy: “This is good vermicelli. What brand is it? Wai Wai or Tai Tai?”
Firda: “Neither. It’s Haiku brand. There are 575 strands in each package.”
Firda: “You know, haiku? 5-7-5?”
Troy: “Ohhh, I got it!”
