The day started beautifully. The air was a flat and crisp 19 degrees C, which turns out to be the temperature that perfectly enhances the taste of a morning coffee. The big Alberta sky was clear and blue, and the bright sun shone down upon Calgary’s Mission district. Purple and yellow flowers lined the street in gorgeous contrast with the leafy green of the trees. It was one of those dawns that all but beams you the message that: ‘today will be a good day.’
Even the rain that was forecasted to fall later did not seem ominous.
‘What? Why are you sayi–’
‘No! FUCK! SHIT!’
‘Fuck…yes. I don’t know where it came from! Fuck! People! Are you really driving around the dog!?’
