    Yukon Freeze It, Part 3

    | Niagara, ON, Canada | Canada, Theme Of The Month, Tourists/Travel

    (I’m about 10 years old. I’m coming out of a store, when a very obvious tourist couple confronts me. They have a kayak strapped to the top of their truck, and some skidoos trailered to the back. It’s summer.)

    Tourist: “You! You can you help me!”

    Me: “Umm, okay. What’s wrong?”

    Tourist: “Where can I go ice fishing?”

    Me: “A lot of places, but it’s way too warm for that right now.”

    Tourist: “We’re in Canada, correct?”

    Me: “Yeah, but it’s summer time. Maybe if you were much further north you’d find ice.”

    Tourist: “I drove up from the south; this is north.”

    Me: “Umm, well you could take your kayak out to Lake Ontario to go regular fishing, but not ice fishing.”

    (The tourist’s wife, with selective hearing issues, chimes in.)

    Tourist’s Wife: “We can go ice fishing?!”

    Me: *gives up* “Sure, just go down Lake Street, and you’ll find the lake.”

    Tourist’s Wife: “Honey look, they name their streets after the places they go to! How cute!”

    (I watch them drive off in the opposite direction.)
