Fitting In Outside The Mainstream

August 5, 2013

Arizona meI doubt if I fit into anyone’s description of the mainstream:

  • I haven’t owned a car in 22 years
  • or a microwave (15 years)
  • or a mobile phone of any kind (ever)
  • I’ve never eaten at McDonald’s
  • I’ve never seen a Star Wars movie
  • My sports of choice are rugby, cricket, cycling and sumo
  • I read history texts for pleasure
  • I’ve never been on Facebook

And yet I fit into this neighbourhood so well.  That’s what I love about Grandview and Commercial Drive:  diversity is boss, and a ready acceptance is standard.
