I’d just like to give a shout out to the crazy guy that spent at least an hour and a half, yesterday morning, screaming obscenities – well, specifically the one nearest and dearest to my vocabulary – as he paced back and forth along the street outside my office. While I hope you were not genuinely distressed over something in particular, the gusto with which you delivered your heartfelt – and unapologetically thorough (at least once for every individual in Toronto) – cry did not go unnoticed by anyone within a five block radius. If your goal was to vocalize the very thought that most Torontonians internalized when they were gut-punched by the arctic air that greeted them first thing, you more than met it. Congratulations. And thank you. Thank you also for finally shutting the eff up.
