When I’m standing in her office, semi-venting* about a problem I have but also looking for her to point me in the right direction on how to put out a fire I may have inadvertently caused and there she is:
Scooping out mushy chunks of cereal out of her bowl and dumping it, spoon by spoon, into her wastebasket.
Listen lady, I’m talking to you. And what I’m saying isn’t all that trivial, either.
(…I’m only now stewing over this, almost 12 hours after this ‘conversation’ happened. WTF.)
*Def. not the same as un-constructively complaining in circles.

And I’m eating a salted chili chocolate donut and sipping on
gin and juice* a masterful mug of chai.
I’m an adult and I make adult decisions.
There are sweet potatoes baking in the oven for what will surely be a sensible dinner later tonight.
*No, because even that’s a tad reckless, even for me.

"How would you feel if you lived on a street called Winners’ Circle but it was actually a straight line and you and all your neighbours were really losers? And would you be embarrassed everytime you gave someone your address and said, out loud, I LIVE AT 123 WINNERS’ CIRCLE."

I’ve hinted at our decade.5-long friendship here before, and this is the scene that pretty much crystallizes it completely for me:
Labour Day Monday, empty plaza parking lot, Markham (my old stomping grounds and where we first met), windows down, radio on, The Edge 102.1 playing the Top 200 songs of the 90s…
#46: Champagne Supernova, Oasis
We broke out
singing wailing in unison - air drums, air gee-tars, synced head bobbing and all the rest. No one else in the backseat even tried to pretend they knew what was going on and sat there quietly until it was over.

I had a McFlurry craving around dinnertime, before even deciding what was for dinner. So I marched over to the Loblaws, picked up a tub of plain 3% yogurt and came home and made myself a granola and fruit parfait. Two birds, one stone, I figure.

In no particular order -
- Popeye’s Tuesday Meal Deal
- Women’s weightlifting (Not even being facetious. I’m SO into it and I have no idea why. I’m not even qualified to join the smallest weight class!)
- Beach Volleyball
- How if there was a medal event for the most bronze medals won at the Olympics, Canada would most likely win…bronze

My stomach hurts SO MUCH from a lethal combination of skipping lunch + suppressed gas (CAN’T FART IN FRONT OF THE BOSS LADY) but I’m also too hungry to not scarf down my stewed beef and curried potato takeout. Finally getting some food in me is at once SO SATISFYING and also a lot like getting punched in the gut at the same time. Awesome.
