Invasion of the Meese!

I am walking along College St., minding my own business, when, on a whim, I decide to walk by the old-fashioned red brick building that is our local fire station, foolishly hoping some bright red fire engines might cheer me up. Sadly, the trucks are safely tucked away, secure from the chunky snowflakes plopping down with abandon.

But as I swallow my disappointment, lo and behold! Not one, but two moose lording over the little road. I blink once, twice, and yet again, hoping perhaps my medication has blurred my vision. But it is to no avail. The moose are still there, both dressed impeccably in white uniform. I have to admit the one in the Maple Leafs jersey is far more attractive. Regrettably, the two are too pompous to look at me, though I come to my senses just in time to snap away frantically with my shiny digital camera. I’m sure they’re basking in the attention, but are too proud to show it. What do you think?

Notice how they studiously ignore me? Neither of them have anything to be proud of. The Maple Leafs fellow? No games to play this season. And the Blue Jays Moose? The saddest team I've ever seen. Maybe that's why they'd rather stand outside in the snow. Poor fellows. Both of them.

    Those big guys get into the darnedest places. We had one in our swimming pool once, but never two up on the roof! ;-)

    Wow! Moose in your backyard? Where do you live?
    This whole moose thing is getting scary. I was embarrassed when Lastman decided it was a good idea to host a herd of more 300 moose in Toronto, and relieved when they all seemed to get away somehow. Now they're popping up in the strangest places.
    I'm on a look-out for them now.

    I grew up in New Hampshire. Moose were scarce then (lots more now). My cousins up in Maine had a worse time. One cousin almost failed his driving test in high school because a moose charged the driver's ed car!

    I think they should give you an automatic pass when that happens...

    Izzy Mo,
    I haven't forgotten. I'll get to the questions soon, inshaa Allaah.
    Take care,
