F Words: Part 2, by j

Standard

Does anyone think it was a coincidence that the family arrived in Toronto the same weekend as the Vanier Cup and the Grey Cup?

A smell a conspiracy afoot.

Early on Saturday morning I woke up to find my dad and Papa had already ventured out in the downtown area and my mom to be snoozin’.

And being the creature that I am, I went off to enjoy some alone time in the nation’s biggest city.

I didn’t go far, but I did check out the city’s Nathan Phillips Square early in he morning. Despite the early hour, there were some enjoying the Grey Cup experience.

The square was done up for the festivities. I imagine it would be full during the day. Here’s a big football player.

There was no ice yet- but a gentle reminder that it was coming. After the important game was done with.

And then they had folks getting ready to feed the hungry masses with an authentic Québécois flair.

And then they had some poor Westerner in a Stampeders jacket reporting early in the morning. He was talking about the bet between Calgary and TO mayors. Little did he know…

Dad tried to talk A into taking a ride on the zip line. No dice.

It wasn’t all football in the square.

After that I followed the screams of the overly aggressive parents to the flag football that was being played on the grassy ice rink. It was damn cold.

And then I was alerted to when Mayor Ford kicked off he festivities for the Grey Cup. He got sent to football camps at Notre Dame as a child, don’t you know?

You’d think with all his football relates troubles he’d keep an arms length.

Let it never be said that (ex) Mayor Ford does things half assed.  No, he definitely goes full ass.

About weywardsisters

The Three Weyward Sisters first appeared in Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”. It turns out we have more in common with these “weird” sisters than we thought. In the Shakespeare play the sisters represent darkness, chaos and conflict. We’ll leave it up to you to decide which of us represents each. They also usually show up to mark impending doom. Well, we certainly hope that our presence on this little corner of the Interwebs doesn’t mean impending doom for anyone. However, we find our commonalities with the witches in other ways. To be weyward means to be willful, disobedient and to turn away from what is “right or proper”. Those who know us would whole heartedly agree – we are three weyward sisters. We are three headstrong, stubborn (some more than others), obstinate and willful sisters. Read at your own risk.
