IMG_20181201_083149319Life is weird. Okay, I said it.  I meant it.  Life is full of weird little coincidences and sometimes I am lucky enough to spot them.  Just think of all the ones I miss.  You might be wondering what an air freshener from a car dealership bathroom where I was getting my oil changed would factor into this.  Or you might be wondering if taking a picture of an air freshener from a car dealership bathroom is in fact the weird point.

Let me explain.

For years, and I could easily mean decades, my Brazilian students have mentioned Bora Bora whenever they were asked about vacations, or honeymoons, or exotic places.  I always noted it, but never really gave it much thought.  Actually, at first, I was a little sceptical.  You see, when I was young, I just thought the name was made up for Hollywood use.  I never thought it was a real place.  After my students mentioned it, I did some Googling, and found out about it.  Though it looks beautiful, I can’t imagine myself spending any time there.  (I have never seen a bicycle trip advertising that as a destination)  It is also probably prohibitively expensive.

Now, years later, though I might not be able to go there, my bathroom can smell like I’ve been there and transported it home.

About Anthony

I am: equal parts rebel, romantic and shockingly average Joe. a writer trapped inside of an ESL teacher's body. an introverted attention seeker. a teacher who hopes one day to be called "Captain, my Captain." an intellectual who can do some very dumb things. a person whose Japan experience, despite being so long ago, still exerts a strong influence upon him. a lover of books, music, beer, hockey and Pizza.
