Life and Times at Cafe Wim
Originally published June, 1995
Café Wim was my favourite place to be in Ottawa. I hung out there long before it was trendy. I drank my first real beer there, an import behemoth called Chimay - a Belgian 12% alcohol beer that kicked you pretty strong (prior to that, I drank stuff like Labatts Blue and Molson Canadian). I had my first cappuccino at Wim. I had my first espresso at Wim. I honed my backgammon skills at Wim. Wim was the kind of place where people didn't judge you, no matter what your political social, or sexual preferences were. I loved that place.
Snatcher of the Tide
Originally published as a three part story in January, 1998
Lemme get you up to speed. See, I didn't do so well this term, what with Mr. Conners telling me it was about time I did something with my life. I was sitting in his office listening to him go on and on about career decisions. For cripes' sakes, I just turned 17! Why should I care about jobs, careers, family! I hate it when ancient people try to tell me what's wrong in my life.
It was the middle of March, and my latest report card was sitting on his desk. I was barely floating along with a grade in the low 60% level. Old Conners is telling my I might be transferred to General level classes, and you know what that means, don't you?
"It means, young man, you will not be able to go to University. You need all your classes to be Advanced level, dontcha know?"
