<p>I missed my bus. By half an hour. I left in plenty of time (alright, I was a little rushed), but who could have predicted a high speed car chase that would shut down Lakeshore for the entire weekend and an accident on the Gardiner? I certainly couldn't. </p>
Thanks to two old friends, Jessalyn and Christine, who just happened to be in the Starbucks beside the bus station where I was consoling myself with a chocolate smoothie for old time's sake. They convinced me that spending a night on a Montreal sidewalk with a bike-in-a-box wouldn't be that bad, and then Christine proceeded to find me a place to stay and help me carry my box.
You're amazing, Christine!
And we have lift off! ...sort of
