sunday january 18

today i was watching the seahawks/packers game at the contender when a friend who was on her way to ossington stop (next door) dropped in to say hi. not a sports fan, she happened to come in just as jermaine kearse caught the game-winning overtime touchdown for seattle, and witnessed the whole bar losing its mind a little. overwhelmed by the experience, she stuck around for about 90 seconds before heading next door.

when i left the contender, i decided to pop into ossington stop to do a better hello, but when i walked in, she and two friends were in the middle of eating dinner. as it turns out, standing next to a table of people sitting down eating food in a bar/restaurant is arguably just as uncomfortable (maybe more!) than being overwhelmed by sports, meaning i also lasted about 90 seconds before seeing myself out. at least we tried.
