Dear City of Ottawa residents,
I take this opportunity to offer you my sincere and heartfelt apology for having brought on this spate of rainy weather by planning to start wearing my sandals.
While I'm at it, I should also lay claim to and tender apologies for the first snowfall of 2010 (I went out in a pale mauve silk jacket); to the calling of the federal election of 2011 (I remember saying "Get on with it already!" after the first dozen or so "we're not running, just slinging mud" TV ads; to the loss of the maple sugar taffy-in-the-snow concession on the canal (I dreamt about it one night in mid-January); to the appalling OCTranspo bus schedule change (I bought my first bus pass in 10 years) and also to the general lack of upswing in the economy (Dave and I decided to try living on just our pensions).
In future, I will try to keep a low profile, or maybe just focus my powers on evil.
