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.”

Candle in the wind

“One of my regulars, she’s a nice lady, she said she’d bake me a cake for my birthday. Then I had to whisper to her husband afterwards that I really didn’t want to have 60 candles on the cake, if you know what I mean. Anyway, he said he’d make sure about the candles.”

Keeping it all together

“How are you doing?”

“I just finished putting a bunch of stuff in my basement.”

“Yup. Know what you mean. My Dad was always mad with my Mom about all the junk she kept in the basement. She was some packrat, which is what he called her sometimes. It got so bad that we couldn’t find the things my Mom saved, like especially snow shovels. So my Dad would get totally frustrated and he’d go buy another shovel. I think we ended up with — it must have been — eight shovels one time.”
