My colleague Diana and I went out to meet my friend Alex at lunch yesterday. It was very sunny; we were looking for somewhere air conditioned. Diana spotted a 12″ plastic snake on the sidewalk at Metcalfe and Albert.
After shawarmas Diana needed twine to tie up cedar hedge trimmings. So we went to Zellers. There we met Jackie, who said she’d rather be at Mooney’s Bay where the guy with the big snake hangs out.
Later I hopped into a cab for the ride home. Alex had given me $20 I didn’t remember he’d owed me. I saw Jackie on the street so we pulled over to offer her a ride. She was delighted. Then we saw a man with a huge snake wrapped around his neck. Three snakes in Ottawa the day of a vote of confidence in the House.
