I took my two oldest children to Granville Island last week. I had to get ready for the trade show and I figured they could hang out while I gathered what I needed. Our first stop was of course Laurelle’s Deli in the Public Market where we picked up walnut cinnamon buns. As we were walking back to my office I told both of them to cover their food lest the seagulls steal it. My son was incredulous that this was possible. But I assured him that indeed it was. As I settled them into their hang out area, I was making sure they each had something with which to entertain themselves. I say to my son…
What are you going to do? Do you have a book?
No, I’m going to stand by the window and watch seagulls steal people’s breakfasts.
Ah, the simple pleasures of life.
