The V-Shaped Face of Ganesh
by Nic Olson
It begins again.
What more can I say, that you haven’t already heard? I have seriously said it all. Two times. How many times can I make the same joke about how last week I pooped a poop to end all poops.
Or how many times can I tell you that getting a straight blade shave is like laying with someone (in the biblical sense), each barber has his own special move before and after, sometimes it burns a little and sometimes it is just better than others.
How many times can I tell you that numerous people have told me I look like Jesus. A lady in Korea said that i have the V-shaped face of Jesus. And I have heard it a few times since. Jesus saves, Nic scores.
Or how many times can I express my love for my Canadiens who have struggled so much since I have left. Signing a 90 year old defenseman, giving the most skilled player in the league a few days off. I seriously cannot say this enough times, EVERY time I leave, they go on an unreal slump. Each time I left for India, they lose it! I am the heart and soul of this team. Next year I vow to take year off and move to Montreal with season tickets and devote a year of my life to them. I guarantee we will win the Stanley cup. I have even been wearing my Habs hat everyday!
How many times can I tell you that I love this place, it’s people, it’s traffic, it’s food, it’s dirt, it’s noise, it’s smell. I guess I will just keep telling you, because there is nothing else to say.
Last time I forced myself to write almost daily. It was stressful without me knowing it. If stress existed, that is.
I’m in Siliguri. Look it up on a map. It is in India.
siliguri..dude i got a call from a very official sounding indian dude the other day. he was asking me all these questions about you. i figured you had died or not held at the border etc. it turns out it was our friends from kolkata. it was funny to talk to him.hope thing are rad. habs blow.lv. e
dude, kovalev blows right now. he needs to sit for a few games and decide whether he wants to play or not. don’t get me wrong, i loves my canadiens, but he needs to shape up or get traded, in the biblical sense. what does that mean, anyway?
