Background: For those of you that don’t know, my wife is Canadian. She’s the lovely and talented Ginger of the North. It seems she’s had more of an effect on me than I realized.
Aaaaanyhow, today is the Fourth of July. I watched the Space Shuttle launch, and feeling patriotic, I came down to my computer to listen to patriotic songs. I listened to the National Anthem, and God Bless America. I listened to Lee Greenwood (today is probably the only day of the year where his song is appropriate and not glurge). I listened to America the Beautiful. And then I noticed Oh Canada sitting in my patriotic music folder. What the hell, I thought. It’s 3 days late for their day, but I like Canada, I’ll give it a listen.
And the strangest thing happened.
While listening to Oh Canada, I felt a swelling in my breast. I got a tear in my eye. I felt the exact same sense of patriotic pride I feel when I listen to the Star Spangled Banner.
WTF? I mean, I like Canada a lot (maybe more than I realized :eek: ) but WTF?? Maybe I should go for dual citizenship. :dubious:
