Thank you to Christmas Trees Admirer (C. Street)

Posted By on Tue, Dec 26, 2017 at 11:44 AM

To the stranger who left a note on my door on Friday, December 22, thanking me for "spreading the Christmas cheer.” THANK YOU for lifting my spirits. I am seriously ill, and just lost my closest friend tragically and unexpectedly, so it's a dismal Christmas. I almost didn't put any decorations out this year, but thought the kids at the daycare might enjoy them. Really glad that adults are enjoying them too. Thank you for lifting my spirits with your sweet note during this extremely difficult time. –Five Trees on C. Street

Hospital staff

Posted By on Wed, Dec 20, 2017 at 12:14 PM

Thank you hospital staff, for dealing with my multiple stupid visits in the last couple months for random stupid injuries. Your sense of humour and friendly dispositions make my visit a lot more relaxed than what I am used to at hospitals full of stoic, cranky old medical professionals with cold hands. —Dumb Idiot Always Getting Hurt

Awestruck

Posted By on Tue, Dec 19, 2017 at 12:05 PM

I saw you working the circulation desk (Sunday 4ish) at the KG Library…blue-eyed with long reddish hair. You left me breathless. Absolutely stunning. Our eyes locked and I blushed, looking away...didn't want to make you uncomfortable. —Helly Hansen

I guess I miss ya

Posted By on Thu, Dec 14, 2017 at 12:00 PM

He didn't notice me noticing you from across the room. My heart leapt and I lost my appetite and concentration entirely. No one makes me tremble the way you do—this context was no different. I've been wondering how you're getting along and recalling why it is I chose not to be there for you as a friend. He and I have known each other for years and I feel comfortable with him because I won't break his heart and he cannot break mine. I knew heartbreak was a possibility with you though, and I was afraid.  I wish I were capable of an adult connection, but even friendship with you is beyond my black and white mentality and my level of maturity. I believe keeping my distance is the most ethical thing for me to do, but damn does my resolve crumble when you're near me. For what it's worth, I care about what happens to you. I care enough not to reach out again. I still think of you and truly hope you're doing well. —(Every-Other) Summer Lover

Exams suck when...

Posted By on Wed, Dec 13, 2017 at 12:08 PM

To the girl studying in the Starbucks on Saturday night. I couldn't help but overhear the long phone conversation you were having with your friend about you and your boyfriend breaking up. You mentioned that it was the weekend right before your Monday exam, and that you had talked about looking forward to seeing him at Christmas. My heart went out to you for dealing with a breakup during your exams and right before Christmas. I hope you get all the TLC you need from friends and family when you get home over the holidays. —You’ll Get Through This

Came for the gelato

Posted By on Sat, Dec 9, 2017 at 12:00 PM

To the cashier with perfect teeth in a popular north end café: I always regret looking like I just rolled out of bed when you’re working. If I needed to showcase how excellent customer service is done, you’d be the first person to come to mind. I’d never tell you personally because I know you are only being polite, but you’re so handsome that I can’t stop myself from behaving nervously every time you smile at me. If this finds you, I hope it brightens your day! —Messy Student

Hey, guys. Missing Halifax and all my dear friends there, all the lovely communal houses, potlucks, open mics, radical gatherings, progressive communities working towards the greater good, great music, community gardens, winter, summer, the Atlantic Ocean...hard to believe I've been in NZ for a year now. Hope any of you who know me know who this is! Sending much love from the other side of the world. I have not forgotten you! —Brown Curly-Haired Shorty In NZ

Massage mistress

Blonde, glasses, friendly! You are such an stellar RMT, and your sessions ease my chronic pain, and your personality is great! I can’t help but feel some flirtation between us? We can talk about pups and prison shows anytime! If not, thank you for the treatments. You’ve been nothing but professional and bubbly! —See Ya Friday

Health care

Posted By on Wed, Dec 6, 2017 at 12:25 PM

Awesome. With all the complaining about our health care here is a story of excellence. On Wednesday afternoon I arrive for an MRI X-ray after stepping off the elevator went directly to the desk was checked in, than told to go further down the hall and wait, once there I was directed to change into the usual clothing and again wait, a lady than came out and took me into the room for the X-ray, after I was done and leaving and walking past the first desk and onto the elevator, a total of 17 minutes, that’s faster than the drive thru coffee shop, so congratulations for our health care. —Lover

Life on the ferry

Posted By on Wed, Dec 6, 2017 at 12:00 PM

Thanks to the security personnel and ferry crews, helping all who want to use Transit on the ferries! People take off your headphones (which are not allowed, but tolerated on/in the Ferry/Ferry Terminal) Sit and chat with the person next to you. Don’t judge by looks, but listen to their story. I did for a year and wow, what a wonderful, diverse city I live in. —It's Me, Enlightened

Blue is most certainly your colour

Posted By on Mon, Dec 4, 2017 at 12:24 PM

To the lovely lady in the blue dress, you don't deserve to be treated like you were. Had I been in a different capacity I would have told your husband off for the way he spoke to you. You're a beautiful woman, both in looks and personality. He really hit the jackpot, he just hasn't realized or appreciated it yet. I'm glad you dragged him away before he got hurt. I just wish he could have paid before he did… —Concerned Man in Black

After being hit by a car on my scooter, a very nice man was the first to jump out of his car and offer assistance. Sir—you had to leave because of your kids in the car, but you will always be my hero. Thank you so much. —Scooter Girl
