Portrait of my youth

I got lost on Dupont Road
looking for the hairdresser
ten minutes before my appointment.
Lost my hand in my bag
looking for a tic tac.

Seems so familiar:
wandering foreign neighbourhoods
counting down house numbers,
mouth cluttered with singing
and dollar store mints.

In a few more months, you can wander all over town whenever you want. :) And can you turn off this word verification crap for posting comments? It's annoying. :P I'm assuming it must be an option somewhere, since it's not on Andrew's blogs.
