Thanks Olympics

Dear Olympics:

Thank you for injecting a lot of fun in this city!  Sadly, I did not get to participate in any of the public events (I really wanted to zipline but the 6 hr wait was a bit much), but I did get to see the smiles on people’s faces when I walked down the street. I’ve lived in Canada my whole life and I have NEVER seen so many Canadian flags or Canadian colours!  On faces, in windows, on cars, in people’s hands – not even on Canada Day!

I thoroughly enjoyed the opening ceremonies.  The closing ceremonies weren’t too bad either….though if you’re going to poke fun at Canadians, though it would have been even funnier if there were giant floating bottles of Molson Canadian beer to go along with the beavers frolicking.

Thank you athletes for all your efforts and thank you Canadian athletes in particular for all your medals.  A shout out to Shelly Ann Brown(silver) and Neville Wright (bronze) who showed little black kids that they too can bobsleigh if they want to.  Hahahaha.

Thank you Team Canada in hockey for taking the gold – cause let’s face it, if we didn’t win that, the city would have burned.

And I got my hair done while the Precious was with daddy watching the game on TV!
