Up where he belongs

December 16, 2010

“Hey, where did you sleep last night? I think they said it was going down to -20C with the windchill.”

“I got lucky. My friend let me use a bed in their house so it was OK. It even wasn’t in the basement, so it was pretty toasty too.”

I don’t want to talk about it

“I slept outside last night.”

“I thought you had something lined up.”

“So did I.”

“What happened?”

“I don’t even want to talk about it.”

Back in bed

Hospital bed - Oct 2 2009

Hi All,
I found him. Tony is in the hospital (again). He checked himself into St. Joseph’s Hospital yesterday after trying, unsuccessfully, to check himself in the day before through the emergency ward, and getting himself sent “home” at the end of the day — a bit ironic if you ask me.

He’s on the 4th floor, Room #4M16. If you’d like to visit him, he’d be delighted. I will try to see him over the weekend. Any ready-to-eat food you can bring him (only stuff that is easily chewable) will be very much appreciated, as his appetite is well beyond what hospital meal portions can fulfill.

Nice, cool

“If I can collect another $8, I’ve got a bed for the night, and it’s in a basement where it’s nice and cool.”

For a few dollars more

“Sometimes I wonder what I’m doing out here when it’s raining like this. Then I remember that I won’t get a bed tonight unless I get myself another six bucks.”

Looking out for Number 11

“Did I tell you about the cop who asked me if I needed her to find me a place to sleep other night? I was just up the road, actually near the place where I got that ticket a few weeks back. So this cruiser from 11 Division comes down Ronces, and it stops in front of me and the cop opens her window and asks if I need a bed. So I tell her thanks but it’s no problem, and I tell her I appreciate her asking me. And she tells me back something like: ‘Come on Tony, you’re the law’s eyes and ears when we’re not around … of course we’re gonna care about you.’

“Now that’s a decent cop for you.”
