The Village People

For the last 9 months I have been working a part-time job. It is at this job I’ve practised and conquered the new and obscure Olympic “Chair Lift” sport.

Besides the “Chair Lift” being a somewhat physically demanding sport, there are other tasks that require equally demanding physical prowess.

So a few days ago when I was helping the helpful truck driver unload new wares for the store, I was a little taken a-back when unprovoked he blurted out the following question,

“Are you from a Village?”

“A Village?”, I asked incredulously.

Awkward pause.

“Yes, like there are villages around”, he clarified.


“You don’t think I am originally from Toronto?”

“No, you can’t be from Toronto, you are much to strong for a girl.”

Laughing I said, “Well if you consider London a Village, then I guess I come from a Village!”

*Note: since we are all girls working at the store and we are all equally strong it would be safe to say we are all Village people 🙂

  1. Always thought that you looked like a very fit young lass!!!…anyone under 40 qualifies for the “young lass” by the way when you are dealing with an ancient like me..have to say that the Village People were the most fun group EVER..whenever there is a party at Casa Pickford very early on “YMCA” or “In the Navy” are getting air time and that’s when the party really starts to rock!
