Two Toronto Bennyisms

  • Yesterday, driving along the Gardiner Expressway:  "It seems that every other light is turned off."  [He was right -- every other street light was turned off.]
  • This morning, when Neil opened the curtains and Ben was suddenly in full sun:  "There is sunlight on my shoulder, and it isn't making me happy at all!" [Think John Denver, "Annie's Song."]

You're sure he's only 3, right? ;)

I think Ben had in mind the song 'Sunshine on my Shoulders'. Those light-blocking hotel curtains can pack a whallop when you open them in the morning.

Okay, okay, so after 2.5 years of blogging I make a little typo or two! (Neil just informed me that Ben specifically referred to "sunshine," not "sunlight," more in keeping with the John Denver lyric.)
