Joyous moment

Posted By on Sat, Apr 29, 2017 at 12:11 PM

To the mom and children (I think twins) at the grocery store, when your kids ran over to me and hugged my legs it was the most heart-warming moment of my life. Seeing the innate kindness of the little people you're raising fills me with hope for the future of humanity. Thank you! —Bearded Goof

Why love one but eat the other?

Posted By on Thu, Apr 27, 2017 at 2:01 PM

Whomever has spent the pretty money on putting pro-vegan ad posters up at the ferry terminals deserves a huge thank you. As a vegan it gets tiring seeing ad after ad for meat and dairy, perpetuating some of the cruelest forms of animal abuse on this planet. Everyone will tell you it's wrong to hurt animals...and yet, we hurt animals every time we sit down to eat. In their capacity to suffer, farm animals are no different than our pets. If we love animals, we simply cannot eat them. Thank you for asking the question, why love but eat the other? —Compassionate Vegan

Running Man

Posted By on Wed, Apr 26, 2017 at 2:50 PM

Yesterday I was biking home after dinner and feeling like curling up in my bed...when I saw a tall man running full-tilt down the middle of Beech street wearing full length running pants, a sweater tucked into long gym shorts, glasses, and a huge smile! I had a sudden huge rush of feeling—a yearning for spontaneity! Gratitude for freedom of movement! Joy for the people I have known who act freely in the world, mixed with melancholy at my own static disposition! So I just wanted to say, thanks for the moment, friend. — Inspired2Live

Route 9 saviour

Posted By on Tue, Apr 25, 2017 at 12:00 PM

To the very thoughtful woman on the route 9 on Friday who saved my 14-year-old daughter  "Ashley" from the really creepy guy.  His small talk was clearly making her uncomfortable and you jumped in with "Hey Ashley! Come sit with me,” pretending that you guys were old friends, when actually you had never seen her before in your life.  I say thank you so very, very much for making her one day a week bus ride much more bearable.  —A very grateful dad

To the blond man in black at the downtown gym

Behind me during cardio, beside me during stretching, and almost into me at the coat section. Had I not been shy, I might have been more than awkward as all hell. —From the brunette woman in black at the downtown gym

Pizza Corner Connection (LOL, yes, really!)

Posted By on Mon, Apr 17, 2017 at 4:00 PM

We met in line while waiting at Willy's for Poutine. You: Donair, and me: Bacon poutine. I showed you mine, you showed me yours. The Penguins won. I got freaked out because my d-bag boyfriend was nearby. He literally showed me during the cab ride home why I should have stayed and talked to you the rest of the night. FUCK! Too late at that point though. Hopefully you see this. —Bacon poutine

Missing My Hometown

Posted By on Fri, Apr 14, 2017 at 12:00 PM

By the time I come home I'll have been gone for over 8 months. I miss you, Halifax. I miss your used clothing boutiques, your library, your nightlife, your fro-yo and poutine, your tree-lined streets, and of course your hipsterness. —HaliLover

Pineapple is not something to be emotional over

Posted By on Thu, Apr 13, 2017 at 11:56 AM

If you don't like pineapple on your pizza that's cool. If you are of the notable minority that does like pineapple on your pizza, that's cool too. I just want you to be happy. —Garlic Fingers

Irish pub mystery man

Posted By on Wed, Apr 12, 2017 at 12:00 PM

To the mystery man at a popular downtown Irish pub who anonymously paid our table's bar tab ($130+): A massive thank you! Apparently someone had done that for him one time and so he was paying it forward. Haligonia rocks! —Dartmouth drinker

Punk rock tribute, Sat. April 1

Posted By on Fri, Apr 7, 2017 at 4:00 PM

I saw you standing in the back at the Punk Rock Tribute night at the pub. You are gorgeous, and I love your long brown hair. I tried several times to get to you to talk, but couldn't get away from my friends. I'm the girl who got stuck in the mosh pit. I'm the petite, brown-haired girl with ripped jeans. I turned around and you were gone! I wish I had another opportunity to say hello! —Punk rock lover
