The Day in Gratitude

December 27th, 2012 at 08:55 pm

1. My spouse brought his work phone with us.
2. Although the spouse took WA-543 instead of WA-539 (Lucky Robin knows what I am talking about), we still managed to get downtown in time for me to renew my passport.
3. The Prius Map feature allowed me to show my spouse he erred in thinking WA-543 was a recently developed WA-539.
4. Border officials do not grill me when I tell them I am renewing my passport.
5. I had eight minutes left in getting back to the car before our time expired.
6. Fiamma Burger's "B'ham'burger." Enough said. (Lucky Robin knows what I am talking about)
7. A man consciously stepped back from the open elevator to let me in first. This has not happened for years. I was taken aback, then flush with gratitude and of course thanked him. Wow.
8. Antlers and red noses on the Translink buses.
9. Spouse bought LAMY ink cartridges for my fountain pen while I was waiting at Passport Canada.
10. May have seen the greatest ever Vancouver Canucks team player driving his BMW into Vancouver!

Everyone was polite and kind today. These greases of the social machinery really buoy me, you know?

    Actually, an elevator is the only place a man is supposed to precede the woman. In case the elevator is faulty, the man takes the plunge instead of the woman. I'm very conscientious when it comes to my manners. When a woman complains (hasn't happened since about 1985), I just shrug and say, "I guess I was raised wrong, ma'am."

    I was wondering about your dual citizenship. You are Canadian/US?

  5. PauletteGoddard Says:

    @Jerry, no I am Canadian. My son has dual citizenship and my spouse is American.
