On this day back in 1867, Canada was officially declared a country and Bloody Caesars were raised by all! For those of you not familiar with Canadian customs, here’s how we traditionally spend Canada Day:
7:00 a.m. Hit snooze button.
7:10 a.m. Hit snooze button again.
7:20 a.m. Fling alarm out the window into a snow bank.
9:00 a.m. Pop Beaver Tails into the toaster.
10:00 a.m. Pull on toque and swing by Timmies for a double-double.
11:00 a.m. Join street hockey game in progress. Taking turns calling out “Car!!!” when a vehicle approaches.
12:00 p.m. Wait in Tim Hortons drive-through line with David Archuleta’s “Stomping the Roses” blasting from the stereo.
1:00 p.m. Buy fireworks by walking into an oven of a tractor-trailer and handing $50 to a greasy guy named Moe.
2:00 p.m. Take all your saved up Canadian Tire money to their store to buy a fire extinguisher … just in case.
3:00 to 8:00 p.m. Barbecue every food you can think of, including salad and pie.
8:00 p.m. Pour maple syrup over ice cream for second dessert.
9:00 p.m. Light sparklers and sign your name in the air till you can’t see straight.
9:30 p.m. Get a crick in your neck from watching sky rockets explode in the night sky.
10:00 p.m. Ski back to your igloo and count up the times you said “sorry” during the day.
Have a great day, everyone! I’m spending my Canada Day travelling to the U.S. to see this guy sing! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Watch this space for a full report!!!
