The creaky old door jars open and a tall thin blonde makes her way in trudging in her purple crumpled suitcase, a basket and a backpack. her glasses pressed tightly to her face as she clambers to the countless objects in her hands. Her eyes shift smoothly to the right spotting the person she must be meeting. the longer i look at her face, the more confused i am about her age. she could be 29 or 41. Being bad at determining age doesn't help my case either but, she sounds mature as she greets the man and talks about how they will get along just well. As soon as i see it as a date the man mentions his wife and the woman seems to have rings on her wedding finger as well.
She pulls out book of her bag and begins flipping through the pages. pointing out different things that would be “Great for him.” and “high quality which makes us better.”
They're intent and excited about whatever they're talking about. both drinking coffee and describing fabrics.
I'm called for my tea and as i walk past i see they are buying socks.
Starting writing this i expected that maybe they were married, maybe she was his daughter. Maybe she’s not from around here, and hes housing her. She stands to her bag now the giant rolling suitcase, and quite literally takes out these pallet boards covered in socks. what seems hundreds of different kinds.
“I'm like a traveling circus, i'm headed to cleveland tonight.”
What kind of job do you travel to sell wholesale athletic socks. i'm not sure if i'm weirded out or rather impressed. either way. that was interesting.
While in Canada I picked up some fun little things that you don't find in the United states! If I had endless money, I would have LOVED to buy more makeup, but lets be realistic. So here is my little haul from Canada!
My first day of spring break this year was a snow day for almost everyone in the area..... Welcome to Michigan...
While everyone else in my family still has work and school, Spring break wasn't going to be a big vacation to Florida unfortunately.... So my mom and I decided on adventuring across the border to London, Ontario for a day trip. Before I shre the pictures, here are a few things I noticed while I was in Canada..
1. People are MUCH nicer. Holding doors for people, smiling as if it comes natural, and everyone is willing to answer any questions you have.
2. Not everybody is glued to their phone. My mom and I went to a pub for lunch and the entire time we were there we saw two people get out on their phone for a moment before putting it away again. Conversation was happening and kids coloring.
3. Their money is funny & Multi colored. It doesn't rip, and it much pretty than the bland off green/beige money here in the states.
4.Pricey. Everything was more expensive even with the money exchange rate.
5.NO TEA!!! Okay if you know me, you know I had ice tea on me at ALL times. I drink more than someone probably should. Everywhere we went and asked if they had tea, they gave us funny looks. They offered to brew hot tea and put it on ice, even McDonald's said they may be getting sweat tea sometime this year and probably not unsweetened. How sad.
Overall, I was very impressed with the country and the people and CANNOT wait to head back to London.
