I saw this week's topic and was going to pass. I'm more the wash and wear kind these days, what do I know of beauty tools? As I was reading what you notice when you first meet someone, of course I read Wayne's entry over at Touristic. My list practically wrote itself.
I turned to my fellow Canadians for a list of 10 tools essential to get along here in the Great White North.
1 Church key
As you can see they come in an assortment of shapes and sizes. Essential to have an opener for your beer. We don't call it the May two four for nothing.
A close second to the church key. Good for lighting your smokes, bonfires and in a pinch an alternate church key. Every good Canuck can MacGuyver a way to open a beer.
Not only the one fashion accessory you need here in the Great White North, it doubles as a useful survival tool to keep warm during our 12 months of winter.
4 Snow shovel
After all it snows year round (or at least it feels like it)
5 Snow mobile (or skidoo as we call them)
Jimmy, Sally, Suzy that fiery redhead and I off to work
Jimmy takes his snowmobiling seriously
6 Snow shoes
In case the skidoo won't start.
These are a little old school
These are a little more like it
7 Chesterfield, no Canadian home is complete without one.
It's where we sit and watch...
To fit in you'll need sticks, skates, the whole kit.
You can never have too many
Or start too young
Being the melting pot we are, I decided to look around and see what others had to say. Number 9 is courtesy of first generation Canadian comedian Russell Peters.
From the humble half barrel
to Jimmy's tricked out ride,
We love our BBQ
No Canadian list would be complete without it so number 10 comes via our national treasure, Red Green
10 Duct Tape
It's never muffled me but.....
There is one final tool you need if you truly want to get along here in Canada.
That's right, to get along in the Great White North, don't forget to pack your "U". It's our favourite.
