An update on the tiny rodent that just showed up in my apartment during the pandemic.

 

For those who have been asking ,“Hey, Andrew. I know global upheaval is going on, but what ever happened to that mouse in your apartment?”, here’s an update.

Yvette.

She is a crafty one.

I have three humane traps set out (picture above) and she won’t go into any of them. They’re full of sunflower seeds – which I know she likes. But I’m being outsmarted.

Bold, sometimes she comes out from behind the kitchen cupboards where I know she hangs and she wanders around. And yes, when I’m in the kitchen, too. She doesn’t give a flying mouse fuck.

I’m kind of in love.

Doing my best to catch her and give her a life in High Park, but she’s not going for it still.

And yes, I refuse to kill her. Unless she starts chewing up my shit. Then all bets are off.

So right now, it seems I have a roommate.

Stay tuned. I’m gonna have to get all Wile E. Coyote on her soon.

Banzai!!

Posted In Blog,The world

Greetings warrior. You savage and relentless wall between all that is good and right in this world!

You know who you are. You did the Ice Bucket Challenge to stop ALS. You stopped using straws for awhile. You changed your social media to a black square for 48 hours – 24 hours longer than you were supposed to! – in a stand against anti-black racism.

And now, you have turned your sights on…

$2 more an hour.

Yes, your new crusade is making sure that workers in grocery stores get to keep their $2 more an hour raise that was temporary during the pandemic but has now been rescinded.

You’ve said it out loud – let them keep their raise.

You’ve posted a link on your Facebook to petitions demanding Galen Weston, a million if not billion –aire, to reconsider. Plexi-glass isn’t enough, dangummit!

Wrong is wrong!

But let’s be honest, Warrior. You’re just like me.

I don’t want to give up my PC Points. And I like to Haul Hard at No Frills. Look, I like my pack of 36 corn tortillas costing only $2.67.

I admit it.

So I can’t sign your petition, warrior friend. I am many flawed things – including a writer who lubes the inner word workings for Capitalism – but I try not to be a hypocrite.

If I won’t actually change my behaviour, what good is my signature?

And the ones at the top who have pulled back the $2 an hour know this to be true.

To alter a phrase I like to use – A principle isn’t a principle until it costs you PC Points.

Changing the world will take more than signatures.

It means we’ll all have to walk two extra blocks for groceries.  Are you in?

You think you are looking at a post about the 15 cents worth of tortillas I burnt this morning, but surprise mofo – Defund the Police!
