New Year Surprise

Hidden on craiglist is a hilarious series of anonymous entries on and about Montreal. It begins with a long open letter to the city (and, really, a lovely piece of writing).

Dear Montreal,

Go ahead, and jab me in the subway with your hardback novel, and then make a tutting noise at me for being in your way.

Go ahead and walk with two friends, six inches between each of you, on the same sidewalk, and roll two pairs of eyes if not all three when I walk up in the opposite direction, breaking your stride.

I love you, and you can’t stop that.

Read the rest of the letter here.
