Music and consent

Posted By on Tue, Jul 16, 2019 at 3:43 PM

Hey, girl from the Common show. I would have called it sexual assault. There's no consent in a power imbalance like that. Hopefully you interpreted it differently. —MeToo

Apologies for the sad tip

Posted By on Tue, Jul 16, 2019 at 7:38 AM

I've always tipped well for every service in Halifax because I know what it's like out here in the hospitality industry—but my hanger got the best of me at a certain pizza place on Saturday, where I angrily put in a $0 tip because my pickup order had been delayed for an hour due to a glitch in the online order. You didn't deserve that. I'll return for more 'za soon and, this time, leave and doubly good tip. —Hangry, now regretful, gal

I'd like to give a shout out to everyone working this past week in customer service and food service who rocked their jobs in this sweltering weather! I see you! You're all working so hard and still manage to be so pleasant, air conditioner or not, and I appreciate that.
PS: Don't forget to tip minimum-wage earners!
Sweaty backs unite!

Space bun princess

I saw you at the most recent HomeBass. You were dressed in green neon and grooving effortlessly on the dance floor. I took your cool neon sunglasses and you slapped me for it. I think I fell in love right then and there. I hope I see your red hair at another event, you're truly something special.—Not cool enough for you

A credit to humanity

Thank you, "Susan in Halifax," for finding and reporting my credit card lost! You saved me from quite the hassle! I hope some good karma comes your way! —WK

I don't normally like beards, but....

I know you're completely off limits, but I can't stop thinking about you. I realize I don't talk to you much, but there's a reason for my silence: You render me tongue-tied with one glance. Sorry for being so abrupt yesterday when you approached me. I'm a complete dork around men I find attractive.You're the first guy I've had an interest in in almost three years, and I'm kinda rusty. I know I don't have a hope in hell with someone like you, but a girl can dream.Thanks for making work tolerable with your dark, brooding, sarcastic presence. You're fine as hell—but you already know that.

The Sweetest Swede

Thank you for joining me on that empty dance-floor over a decade ago. If it wasn't for your sense of adventure, we wouldn't be here today. —French Canadian

To the dump truck driver with the blowout

Posted By on Tue, Jun 25, 2019 at 11:17 AM

On Tuesday afternoon, I was cycling on Main Road in Eastern Passage when you passed me. Just as you came alongside me, your right front tire blew out. Thanks to your skill and experience, I didn't even realize what happened until you were well ahead of me. I know how dangerous blowouts can be, and if you didn't react as quickly as you did you could have veered right into me. Maybe saying you saved my life is a bit over the top, but I sure am grateful that there are drivers like you out there who know exactly what to do in an emergency and stay calm under pressure. Thanks!

Best of all?

You were simply the most toxic person I have ever involved myself with. Every day was a battle. Lots of love, though. I hope you're at least somewhat happy now. But if you could please stop speaking so poorly of someone who only tried to help? I don't expect it to happen—I am aware that you've backed yourself into a corner and feel like you have to defend a story that no one else is arguing. Thanks for the reputation.

Oh! And thanks for cheating. That was a surprise. No wonder you're cowering. Also, I was good in bed. Not you.
—Happy with someone else

Cyclists in Shubie

Not a Bitch but an apology to the couple riding in Shubie on Saturday afternoon. My daughter wiped out as we met you on a blind corner. I was rude to you and I had no reason to be, nor excuse. I’m sorry. I hope my behaviour didn’t detract from your ride on what was a beautiful day in the park.
—Sincerely

My fave legal dealer

  To the guy with the curly hair and glasses who works at one of the NSLC's dope counters: I play the line game trying to get you but I always end up at the other guy's tilt. Such a bummer as you are lovely. I wonder if you're single?
—Can I have a receipt please?

To the shark-suited guitar-playing guy and his amazing entourage on Inglis Street on Bluenose marathon Sunday: thank you! Your singing and dancing gave me a well-needed boost to climb that hill during the marathon. It cheered me up for several kilometres and I still smile just thinking about it! You guys rock!

Long Distance Love

Posted By on Tue, Jun 18, 2019 at 10:15 AM

After a few years away from Halifax, I've only grown to love it even more. I've talked about Halifax so positively and extensively that almost every single one of the friends I've made in Vancouver is dead-set on visiting. The Seaport Market, bike routes in Dartmouth, the Frog Pond, DeeDee's, Trident Coffee, the Hydrostone... People keep asking if I'll miss Vancouver, but how could I when I'm heading back to Halifax?

You’re positively beautiful!

  Thanks for making my day! You were just leaving the breast-screening clinic when you turned to the rest of us waiting, smiled, and proudly exclaimed that it only takes half the time when you only have one breast. Your comment provoked many smiles and chuckles. Clearly you have a great sense of humour in spite of being to hell and back with your own health. I love your attitude. We can all learn something from you!
