Happy Birthday to me! Yep, that’s right folks – it’s ma burday. Today I turn 27 years of age and when people ask me how old I am, I still don’t know what to tell them. Since I turned 19, I’ve always answered “19” and now that I’m getting older I just stare blankly… early memory loss perhaps? Perhaps.
Don’t think I’ve forgotten to tell you about my Toronto trip though. In a nutshell, it was a roller coaster. It was my first time to the city and I did not take to it for the first two days. I didn’t see what was so special about it… I missed Vancouver terribly. I guess you could say I was staring at the city with closed eyes. I did not give it a chance. Fast forward to the last day and I would do anything to not leave it.
You’re probably thinking “Okay, cool Randa. That’s great. We like Toronto too. Now tell us about The Snowboarder!”… I couldn’t be more smitten. I won’t go into details but we spent 4 days together and those 4 days were exciting, passionate, loving, funny, upsetting, confusing and in a nutshell – a blast. If you remember correctly, I only spent 3 hours with him before he left so my expectations of how he would be for 4 days was a little all over the place. It was definitely different.
Sometimes I would question if this was the right choice and then I would stare at him and think “yep.. it is.” We’re very much alike, however the palm reader we spent 30 minutes with would beg to differ. According to the Gypsy we’re complete opposites but the best for each other. We made great memories together: Blue Jays game, Toronto Island, bike rides, dinners, etc. Those were all great but my favorite memories would be our times dining together, him at the skate park, falling asleep beside him and waking up to his snores, feeling him stare at me across the table or hearing him laugh.
We didn’t discuss where we go from here. I don’t think it needs to be? I just want to go with it since it feels right…let the fire burn.
