I have just returned from one of the weirdest, if not the weirdest days/nights in my life, but it was also one hell of a good time. It all started off with a trip out on the town to get some food to eat and maybe see a movie with a couple friends. We ended up at Red Lobster and finally got a table around 8PM. With a nice, long dinner done at a bit past 9:30PM, we headed north to either the theatre or home, depending on how we felt in the drive. But, all that changed when we took a wrong turn and started heading south towards the 401. Jokingly one of them said, “Hey we should go to Mississauga.” (his home) I decided to play along as did the other guy, who lives in Oakville. Before I knew it, we were on the 401 headed for Mississauga. They called up some friends and around 10:30PM found myself at a bowling complex. (I call it a complex as it had 50 lanes, a little bigger than the Basilica…) This was no 5 pin bowling with the little balls. This was full out 10 pin bowling with those full-sized bowling balls. It was quite a lot of fun. After bowling for about an hour, we hit up Tim’s for a nice drink to keep up the level of consciousness.

After that, on the way down to the guy’s place in Oakville, they showed me their previous school, Appleby College. That was some high class action. We then proceeded to play Halo 2 for several hours and watched some movies for the rest of the time. Basically it was the laziest things you could possibly imagine. Then around 6AM, we decided to leave and head back to the University of Waterloo, where I am now writing this from. I am absolutely dead tired and I can hardly wait to go to bed. Just when everyone else is getting up, I’ll be falling unconscious. It’s going to be great. If you’ve gotten this far, sorry for the barely coherent paragraphs and poorly formed sentences. It’s the best I could do with zero sleep in far too long.

Yeah, it was just one of those nights. Life is best taken spontaneously, several times a day. 🙂

  1. A Couple of weekends ago I had an extremely spontaneous Friday night that can rank as one of the best days of my life. I find that unexpected adventures usually turn out to be the best kind.

  2. I can definitely vouch for the power of spontaneity. This whole trumpet weekend was pretty spontaneous and turned out to be one of the most powerful of my life ( the mozart requiem).
