I met my friend Felix and Carlyn for lunch in Santa Fe today. It was a nice break to get off the hill and to have a fabulous chat with two awesome women.
On my way back to Dodge, I hit a Trader Joes for some groceries. In the parking lot I saw a woman wearing a Hudson Bay coat. I asked her if she was Canadian.
No, she answered, she said she was just lucky. Nice friendly answer, I thought. Then as she walked away, she said, â€œIâ€™ll tell you a boot it sometime.â€
Granted Iâ€™ve only lived in Canada since 1996 – so I am a relative new comer and an immigrant at that. But it is my experience that Canadians do not say, a boot. They just donâ€™t. Some people do have accents; most donâ€™t, but when I hear Canadians speak, they all say about â€” about the same way I do.
