Late on a Sunday night, and I see a kid walking through our neighborhood with baggy pants he can barely hold up, a hoody covering his head, blasting loud music through his headphones.
I pointed out the huge Northern Lights explosion I was starting at behind him. He said “Wow, that’s beautiful. I’m from Florida, I’ve never seen that. Wow.”
We all marveled for a minute, and then he said “Thanks, take care. Have a good night.”
Another father, in another city may have had a different reaction seeing a person like that wandering through his quiet suburban community.
Not in Canada.
