Beware of the Zebra

Hello there beautiful!

A few weeks ago I met up with a friend for dinner. It was track suit day in the office and I was wearing a brand new track jacket. It isn’t a typical track jacket, the fabric has a Zebra pattern.

The moment we sat down to order I commented on the special day in the office.

His reply, “Oh that makes sense, I thought you were going to attack me.”

l didn’t ask for clarification, we’ve been friends for years, and instead made a mental note that as comfortable as my Zebra print track jacket might be I wouldn’t be wearing it on a first/second/third… date.

That should have been my clue.

This evening after spending the day working from home I decided to take a quick trip to the mall to get out of my house, see people and exercise . I didn’t think twice about my comfy Zebra track jacket l was wearing and off I went.

l rounded the bend on the last hallway of the Mall, getting set to come home.

There was a man and what looked like his two teenage daughters walking towards me.

The man slowed down, he had his eye on me. He swapped sides with one of his daughters setting himself up to be beside me when they walked past.

They were one step away when he made his move.

He leaned in close enough for me to hear him whisper with forced air “BEAUTIFUL”

Goodbye Zebra print comfy track jacket, for ever banished from public view!

Bat Girl and Fresh Minty

Bat Girl and Fresh Minty

We are all well aware of Bat Man, Cat Woman but move over Bat Girl has arrived in town!

I love my niece’s and nephew primarily for how ridiculous they can be and funny.

Bat Girl I am guessing must be the offspring of Bat Man? I suppose I need to get caught up on my reading…or just visit Wikipedia 🙂

It is important to know Bat Girl is on the loose today. My favourite part of the outfit are the yellow gloves.

So in other news, I spent the other day at the mall with another little munchkin. She’s a good little shopper but has decided malls are best for playing tag and hide and seek.

“Come on auntie, chase me, chase me, you’re iiiittttt….”

And off she’d dance circles around me trying to get me to run.

Instead of tag we settled for throwing pennies in the water fountain. I only had one penny, I know why didn’t I come prepared!! But that’s ok because it is fully acceptable to reach into the water and get the penny for a second, third, fourth, fifth throw. On the umpteenth throw the penny landed in with it’s friends. This is when the penny throwing came to an abrupt end.

“I am going to leave the penny cause I can’t tell which one is mine!”

We were also chewing gum that day. Its a big girl thing to do but after chewing for an hour she decided to spit it out.

Before she went to the garbage she asked,

“Do you know why people chew gum?”

“Not a clue, why?”

“So they can have fresh minty breath.”

And off she darted to dispose of her gum.

She returned only to declare


And with that she opened her mouth wide so I could smell her fresh minty mouth.

Only a child 🙂 and that is why they are so great. They make us laugh, smile and help us be a little more…I don’t know haha! I am sure there are some “happy endorphins” that are generated every time they do something funny that we WISH we could do as adults but never would 🙂

Hero Burger…not just Burgers

Hero Burger…not just Burgers

Contrary to popular belief, I do not shop at Hero Burger for their Burgers. Don’t get me wrong, they are yummy burgers, but its more than a burger.

It’s also not because its in the mall, nor the need to fight for a decent parking space and then end up giving in, parking across the road and playing chicken just to get to the food court. It’s not the certified Angus beef, or the delicious onion rings. It’s not even the mall birds that fly happily about, above all the folks eating their take-out meals below them.

By the way, about these mall birds. I have never seen one do the deed which makes me wonder, are they hybrid? trained to use the litter? or perhaps the little pebbles that they do produce, scatter into thin air prior to landing on people and their food? Anyone?

I digress (I dislike this word, but I an using it here), what I really like about Hero Burger is the Ketchup they give out with their fries. Its not any old ketchup, its HEINZ ketchup. If there were ever a worldwide ketchup contest, Heinz would win. The problem is some of my favourite little restaurants do not understand the importance of Heinz.

This is why I love Hero Burger. They give out these fun Dip & Squeeze Heinz ketchup packages. I caution against Dipping and Squeezing all at once, I am afraid the results may not be ideal.

You’ve likely guess, but I struggle through eating my bag of Hero fries sans ketchup. Why? Well I am thinking of the future, planning, strategizing on the next time I’ll be visiting Sizzling Jak’s and I can pull my neat little packages out of my pocket and have the most amazing, greasy breakfast, smothered in Heinz ketchup 🙂
