Part one was here just in case you missed it. I must say I was in two minds about talking about this, because I could end up with all sorts of strange and delightful people popping by when they do a google search.
What on earth am I talking about you say.......well me and dd are walking along Queen Street when we come across this store with these strange glass jar/vases in the window. They were really neat, and I wouldn't have minded a couple of them in the house as decorative items. However on closer inspection I see the words Marijuana and a word beginning with "H" can't remember what it was now. So of course I put two and two together and I DO GET FOUR!!! I was going to take a photo, but luckily I thought better of this, as I was concerned about being arrested. I never knew you could buy that sort of thing. By the way there was another store selling the same thing on the other side of the street.
Also on this street was a store called the Condom Shack and all it sold was condoms.........who knew that there was a store dedicated to condoms???? I mean it was an education seeing these stores!!! Then we were walking along and coming towards us was a talk stick thin person in skin tight leopard skin leggings, high heels and furry bomber jacket and big sunglasses. I mean you noticed this person, however as I said to dd when they had passed, was it a man or a woman? I was telling my friend about this and she thought he/she was probably a hooker!!!!! Hadn't thought of that.
By the way, just in case you are concerned about me being in a seedy part of town, I don't think I was. I didn't feel frightened or anything, in fact I love to go downtown to people watch as there are so many strange and unusual people around. One man passed us, swearing up a storm, it was obvious one of his personalities was having an argument with another of his personalities...LOL
Now a I am getting old story, or at least dd treats me as I am getting old and senile!! So the Toronto subway is like a U shape. We generally get on at the top right hand side and to go to downtown we get off at the bottom right hand side. However this day we had to go round the bottom of the U and get off at the bottom left hand side. Are you following me?
So dd had a meeting downtown in the afternoon, so I said that's fine I will just get on the subway and go back up to dd house and pick up my car and go home. Dd says no I will go with you, as you'll end up getting lost and her dad will "kill her." I say no I will be fine, she says no and we argue back and forward. With me finally giving in. Have to be honest just as well I gave in, as I had forgotten we were on the left side of the "U" and automatically went to get on the Northbound train, where in fact I should have got on the southbound train, to go around the bottom of the "U."
So I get a lecture from dd about how I was going to get on the wrong train and I would have got lost. Then she goes on about standing in the wrong place at the station. When we got to her stop, I got a lecture about where I was to go to get to her house, and she was going to call me later to make sure I got home....LOL Oh how the roles are being reversed, it's normally me giving the lectures!!! Needless to say I managed to get to her house without getting lost and got home fine.
By the way on our way down town we called in at Starbucks and we got a Vanilla Rooibos Tazo Tea Latte I had a two for one coupon, so we thought we'd give it a try. They were really nice, very different. As I don't take sugar in my tea or coffee, I had mine without the vanilla syrup. They are expensive though, as we got two large ones, and even with the 2 for 1 coupon it still came to just under $5, still it warmed us through while we were on the subway.
Well I think that will do for today. I will leave part 3 for another day........yes I know there is more to this day......LOL
