There was a complaint registered about the lack of food-based pictures on this blog, so I went out and forced myself to eat delicious things today in an effort to oblige. I’m all about pleasing others, I tell you.
The woman at this little bakery was very funny. She asked me where I was from, and why I was taking pictures of her baked goods. Which is a completely fair question. But then we had the following exchange (I was nowhere near this eloquent, since I was speaking in French, but I think I got the point across):
Me: “I have a friend who really likes baked goods, and I thought I’d show her how delicious they are here.”
Her: “Of course, of course. But, they don’t have bakeries in Canada?”
Me: “Well, yes, they do. But not as many.”
Her: Pause for a minute. “Riight. Probably less independent? So you need pictures?”
Me: “Um … She really, really likes baked goods.”
