The NIH may be cracking down on “the dog ate my homework” excuses, but luckily other people are more forgiving.
I was ever so slightly late for my own meeting this morning, but everyone accepted my proffered excuses. I’m sure every city has its specific reasons for being late that everyone who lives there understands, and today I used two Very Vancouver Excuses:
- I came out of my house at the exact moment when the gorgeous orangey-pink light from the sunrise hit the Lions (mountains to the north of the city, currently covered in snow), and it was so beautiful that I had to stop and take a photo;
- I then had to detour around a movie shoot.
The iPhone photo doesn’t begin to do it justice, of course, but it was good enough to prove my point at the meeting!
The bright, almost neon glow of sunrise-reflected-on-snow was gone within two minutes of the photo being taken, but it was amazing enough to make me smile all the way to work. Nothing like starting your week off right!
