On the Way to Work


My colleagues and I have passed this store window every day for at least the past year,  Despite working as ESL teachers, not one of us has noticed the irregularity–that was only half-heartedly meant as a pun.  If they had noticed it, they certainly would have said something.

This happens often in Toronto at ethnic restaurants.  I have often seen Colona beer or something like that.  On the other hand, maybe that says something about the multicultural aspect of Toronto.  We just aren’t bothered by it all.

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.
