I am currently in a love-hate relationship with my frenemy the big red limo (better known as OC Transpo- Ottawa's public transit system). The boy's car is a 13 year old clunker and has finally given up on life. The coolant is leaking, the motor is overheating and it's just plain dangerous to drive. Because the boy drove this lemon for over a decade, he wants to treat himself to a fancy BMW which means saving up for the down payment. In the interim, I am taking the big red limo to work (which adds an hour to my daily commute) and now for date nights. It's not all bad, the buses in Ottawa come fairly regularly (compared to the pre-historic public transit system in Halifax) and they stay on the Transitway for the majority of my travels (which means avoiding the traffic!)
On Saturday the boy and I braved the blizzard to go see The King's Speech (which he found painful due to all the stuttering- well that's kind of the point of the movie!) We then went out to eat at Grill 41 and wrapped up the night with games, wines and pug adoring at my best friend's house. OC Transpo- I have one suggestion for you- create a de-odourizing system so I don't have to smell the sweat and labour of the commuters on the way home from work! Then we might be best of friends!
