friday january 30

today i was walking down the street to the dufferin mall when i was stopped by a woman alongside a truck parked on the road. "can you give me a push?" she asked me. "i don't know if it'll help, but i can't get out of here." her truck was, indeed, pretty well stuck in the snow, so i said sure and positioned myself behind the truck, ready to push. as i was getting into position, another guy walking past noticed and asked "you pushing?" i said yes i was, and he too, got in place to help out. it was a nice moment, and felt like the community was really coming together to help a woman in need. regrettably, the pushing didn't help, and we both had places to be, so 30 seconds later, we wished her good luck and went our separate ways.
