1) Today, I called my mom to congratulate her on being married to my dad, aka The Grinch, for 31 years.
Me: Hi. Happy anniversary!
Five second pause.
Mom: Who is this?
I guess she’s not accustomed to me sounding chirpy. I guess I take after my father in this aspect …
2. A few nights ago, I found myself awake at two in the morning to find the resident bergie (homeless man) standing outside my window. He was having an argument. With himself. Yes, my neighbourhood has lots of character.
3. Today my brother heads off for a 3 week stint around South East Asia. I am both excited and absolutely terrified for him.
4. Rejoice, people. After “living” (some might call it squatting) in my apartment for almost 2 weeks, I FINALLY have a fridge. I also have a future brother-in-law. The two stories are unrelated. My future brother-in-law didn’t simply look at my fridge and think, “Hmmm, Sid has a nice fridge. I think I should marry her sister.” Although THAT would make an excellent blog post.
Congrats to my pretty sister AND her lovely fiancé.
