Two things totally cracked me up today.
Shelley is, thank god, back from her vacation. She was on the west coast, visiting a friend of hers. It’s beautiful out there, but obviously, flowers or no flowers, she belongs in Ottawa.
The following exchange happened while we were catching up on the way to Bridgehead. It made me bark with laughter in the barista’s face.
Oh no, it was an internet date. If it’d been an in-person date, you would have heard about it.
Shelley [with a lar lar grin]
Heard it all the way in Victoria!
Well, definitely by email, that’s for sure.

It’s been a pretty quiet week though. What else. Huh. Um, I think I pulled something in shoulder stand during yoga this morning.
That’s what you get for standing on your shoulders before breakfast.
Hm. I was worried about that. Without the perfect timing, the pause pause ZING, I feel like it falls a little flat.
My lack of humour-writing skills aside, it was the "before breakfast" part that got me, I think. Like if I’d just had some toast in there…
Jennifer wrote this to me today - I'll leave you to imagine the context.
"I can see why. You have some things in common with daschunds. You are skinny, cute, and shy in new situations."
