Why I love Summer in Toronto:
When it’s hot the city sets up emergency cooling centers. They hand out water and tell people how to stay cool. Where else in the world does that happen?
The festivals: All over Toronto, someone is celebrating something, whether its their teams soccer win, tasty Thursdays, salsa or some obscure African festival…..if it exists someone in Toronto is celebrating it
Gay Pride: I had the privilege of marching at the Pride parade this year. What a crazy experience, from the funky to the earnest, it was a fun day.
Walking place for no other reason than its hot…and I can.
Summer sales, buying pretty dresses in bright colors
Summer tans…..and tan lines
BBQ’s that are themed and involve the limbo
Coming home at 2 am, just because the night was too beautiful to waste by sleeping
Sitting on my balcony reading a book on a lazy Sunday afternoon
Wearing dresses to work, you almost never have to iron a dress
Driving around without air conditioning, not because you don’t have it, but because the little beads of sweat that drip down
your back is sooooo HAWT
The thought that perhaps sitting outside sweating is as good as 30 minutes on the treadmill (no need to insert reality in here)
Rollo-120 calorie ice cream sticks-if you have not tried this…YOU SHOULD
