This weather is CRAZY! I’m not complaining, don’t get me wrong, but there is something about perfect, sunny, warm days that make me disfunctional. I lose my indentity, as though I’m meant to live in the land of the dark and dour. When it`s cloudy, I don`t have to squint and when it rains, I don`t have to wash my car. When it`s crap outside, I can be inside! The other day, the weather was so bright and hot that I totally forgot to eat. Me. I forgot to eat. It was 2:30 in the afternoon and I was getting ready to prospect that really nice upper beach neighbourhood south of Gerrard at Main when I started to feel light headed and delirious. What is this feeling? Thankfully Bret Michaels explained on Larry King what a brain hemorrhage felt like, and this couldn’t have been it. I figured it was hunger, in an advanced stage, normally I don’t let it get that far. All that outdoorness made me forget about foode (I spell it that way on purpose). Luckily right on Main, there was a restaurant calling my name. Cool Runnings is a cute little Caribbean restaurant at 146 Main. I would like to claim that I discovered this little gem (they have another location at 2708 Danforth Ave) but as it turns out, everybody I know gets hankerings for roti and they go here or have it delivered. But now that I have made my discovery, I’ll be going back for more. Here it is half eaten:
And wash it down with a Red Stripe! I felt like I was on vacation, the people were so nice! I could have stayed there all afternoon, just to hide from the sun.
