Paris, Paris and Paris
May 20, 2012 — Chris
Yesterday I wrote a poem about my small town Paris On Canada. I did this because it is funny how many people who see Paris think I am from France. Even when we were moving from Windsor Ont to Paris Ont I asked the movers who came to give us a quote, how long before we would expect to receive our furniture. The boss said, “It will depend on the company policies but probably approx. 6 weeks.” “Six weeks?” I questioned. ” How could it take so long it is only a three-hour drive.” Acting very confused the boss said,”You are moving to Paris are you not?” “Yes I said but Paris Ont.” After thinking for a few minutes he said. “There is a Paris in Ontario?’ “Yes there certainly is and I would like to live in the same place my furniture is please.” He excused himself to make a phone call and within a few minutes came back. I asked if everything was ok? He told me he had to cancel the truck they had on hold for us as it was a container for using on a ship. I was sure glad I straightened that one out or the moving fees would have been more than our mortgage. Within one short day I found out from all my friends here in FS not only is there a Paris France there is also of course Paris Ont, Paris Texas and Paris Illinois. Wow who knew. This turned out to be a lesson in geography how wonderful. I am sure though that all those others do not want our title of Parasite lol. This makes us special.
