HELLO FROM CANADA
Yep, the Rabbits are vacationing in the Great North. Whistler, B.C. to be exact. Why? So that certain people whose names are not Me can ski. There are two mountains here, no waiting.
There’s plenty of waiting to eat, however. We arrived around dinner time and traipsed out into the village with the friends we came with, looking for a table for seven. After several maitre-des laughed and one French guy shoved us out on the stoop, we returned to the hotel and phoned for delivery pizza and assorted other items. Three hungry children, one hungry teenager, and three hungry adults spent the next two hours considering which one of us the others would eat if in fact the food never arrived.
Happily, a frazzled deliverer finally appeared at the door. With the wrong order.
“Oops,” she said. “Your order is in my car. I’ll be right back.”
Certain she was gone for good, we all started edging for the knife drawer.
She returned. The life of one of our party was spared, but the food was cold and largely inedible. We ate it anyway.
Wait, I forgot to mention a very important fact. Little Bit lost a tooth in Vancouver. Actually, she still has it. It’s not lying on the street or anything, but it is not in her mouth.
The question is, what do Canadian tooth fairies pay? We visited an ATM in Vancouver and acquired some Canadian funds, but all in $20 bills. That seems a bit steep for one little tooth. Fortunately, Technogeek has gone out to the pub with his friend Single Dad and will presumably return with some loonies in his pocket.
Tomorrow I shall explore the village, or at the least the village coffee shops, and work on the book project I’ve now been ignoring for months. Or maybe I’ll just lie around the hotel room and read.
We won’t have to resort to cannibalism, because I’ve already made a reservation for tomorrow night. If the restaurant screws up and doesn’t have a table for us, we will eat the manager.
