I got this shot the other day when I was downtown. I liked the way the Mount Royal colors were visible between the skyscrapers.
I didn't even notice I was blond in that twenty five year old picture yesterday. I was a towhead all through my youth and then it turned brownish in the winters and finally stayed brown in my 20's. I only dyed my hair twice, once with my father if I recall correctly, and it came out orange which thusly led to the second dying. Somebody has a picture of that somewhere but I don't. Also, I noticed that I had rubber thongs except not the kind that are so ubiquitous today with the anchor between the large and second toe. Even then I had an aversion to flip-flops.
Ugh, I think we're going to have to get Sara some diapers. She seems to leak urine all the time now. It ends up staining and accumulating even though it's usually just a drop or two at a time. Imagine a living stalactite in a cave, slowly oozing water. After a while it stinks, like sweaty socks fermenting. I keep thinking my feet are smelling and then realize it's her stinky bed. (which we keep washing) Can't see, can't hear, can't hold her pee, can't walk without stumbling, trips and falls frequently. I'm not rattling a sabre but someone else around here is. In fact, he made some fact checking calls yesterday. I know it's inevitable but I pleaded for at least another weekend.
We showed the apartment yesterday. We had put a note on stinky man's door two days prior alerting him to the visits scheduled. He never saw the note because he never came out of his dungeon to see it. So he was surprised when we went in thinking he was out of town. God did it reek. We had to give a little pep talk to each visitor before we went in promising that it would be totally disinfected. One of the people we showed it to actually gagged several times while we were down there. The good news is that it looks like one of the visitors wants it. A nice girl from France. I think the french are used to funky smells, as she didn't seem too bothered by it.
Here's wishing you a stench free weekend.
