OKAY STORYTIME BECAUSE THIS IS MY FAVOURITE THING EVER AND I NEED TO SHARE:
So when I was in Vegas, Emily (likepoetrytofish) tweeted that she got hit by a car. I, of course, saw that tweet and FREAKED OUT because WHAT ARE YOU OKAY OMG EMILY WHAT’S GOING ON TELL ME RN
And Emily replies to me like:
I’m totally okay, I just rolled over a little and got scared. The lady gave me $20 for ice cream.
So I’m just standing there, in the middle of our hotel room in Vegas, torn between being scared for her and laughing my ass off, because what the hell. Is this some sort of strange Canadian custom or something? Hit someone with a car, offer to buy them ice cream????
Later, Emily told me that her and her friends on their way to get ice cream when the lady hit her, and when the lady found out, she offered to compensate them for the scare and pay for their ice cream.
But I will never get the image out of my head that Emily got hit by a car and the lady got out and was like OMG ARE YOU OKAY ARE YOU SURE HERE HAVE $20 GO BUY SOME ICE CREAM YOU’LL FEEL BETTER
It’s like ice cream is the Canadian version of chocolate in Harry Potter.
