Note in the mailbox

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Misc. life

Dear Neighbor,

I know it can be annoying to wake up to find that the exterior of your car is wet from recent rainfall, but I really don’t think AIR DRYING IT WITH YOUR LEAF BLOWER is a very good thing to do.

Global warming is your fault mister. I hope you can live with that.

Um, not to be a nitpicker BUT I think the Leaf Blower in and of itself may be a demonstration of his/her lack of anything approaching concern for Global Warming. You’d never have to write this if she/he used a rake.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
