Some of you may be wondering where I was all weekend.
The Bookpuddle has been silent of its usual ripples.
That’s where I was… oh yes, now I remember.
Montreal is a nutso place!
And while there, I discovered something I had not known about this city.
[Girlfriends, listen up. →] Montreal has the largest interconnected underground shopping system in the entire world.
That’s right. Not just Canada.
It is insane, how far you can walk around, spending money with wild abandon!
AND NO MATTER THE WEATHER.
Ms. Katrina can be raging outside and your credit card WILL THINK IT’S THE MILDEST DAY OF THE YEAR!
Yeah. It’s crazy. Not for the faint of heart.
Let me put it in perspective for you. You can be walking along Catherine Street and innocently enter a Guess© store, or maybe Tommy Hilfiger© or American Eagle Outfitters© and…. umm…. see you next week, honey!
Better drop crumbs behind you Hansel and/or Gretal, if you ever intend of re-entering the exterior world through the same aperture with which you went in to the abyss!
IT IS INSANE!
I made the mistake of wandering around in a Le Chateau© on Friday night [the men’s section, relax!]… and somehow got pooped out the nether-end of the thing Saturday afternoon.
In a different time zone!
The Underground City will boggle you.
The Underground City will rob you blind.
And will not apologize.
But fun. It’s fun!
You don’t believe me?
