(Sung to the melody of "O Canada")
O Canada, the place where we had fun,
That Customs chick, she almost pulled her gun ...
Scott, Eric, and I hit Windsor last night. Needless to say, just getting
into the country proved to be a real bitch.
"Purpose of your visit to Canada?"
As if I was going to tell them
we were going to the casino, and then go get drunk or laid. We'd
have been arrested on the spot if I'd let Eric keep talking. "We're
visiting some friends in Windsor."
She wasn't entirely buying it. "Where?"
"Just off of Ouellette
Street, close to downtown."
"How did you meet these friends?"
Fuck, I thought to myself,
this bitch is gonna nail us. Thinking quickly, I replied, "By
"And you're going to meet them for the first time?"
Sighing, she asked, "Are you bringing anything into
Scott, once we
were out of the agent's earshot: "FUCK YOU, BITCH!"
That was the worst part. After losing a combined total of about $40 U.S.
at the casino, we decided to hit a strip joint. We tried Studio 4, one of
Windsor's best-known and classiest adult entertainment places.
Unfortunately, the cover charge of $10 Canadian proved to be prohibitive
considering our casino losses. However, when my future roommate Billy
turns 19 in September, we will drag him over there and have one of the
girls perform a "birthday dance" for him.
Most everything besides Studio 4 proved to be closed at 2:20 am, so we
decided, "fuck this, let's hit the 'Vu," and left Canada. Some white
trash from U-D in a shitty old car cut us off as we entered the tunnel,
only because of Eric's U-M bumper sticker. Later, the U.S. customs agent
wouldn't take Eric's word for it on my and Scott's American citizenship --
he asked us both to speak for ourselves -- but then waved us on.
The 'Vu being closed, we decided to cruise A2 "for shits and
giggles," as I put it. Of course, everything here was closed too, much
like Windsor two hours earlier. We then hit the Bursley game room, where
Scott kicked ass in a pinball game. It was 6:05 am before I was in
Going to tonight's hockey game against BGSU. We came back from a 2-1
deficit to win last night's Game 1, 3-2, as Bob Hayes and David Huntzicker
scored the third-period goals for Blue.
