I took a much needed road trip to Montreal this weekend. I went with Josee, my now unemployed ex-coworker. She used to live there and was craving a get away. I had been there last year and wanted to go back and see it as a local.
I took off work on Friday and we did the 8 hour drive straight North in the pouring rain.
As I drove through the Adirondacks, the leaves were at their color peak. Even against a gray, dreary sky they popped.
"Wow! Look how beautiful the trees are!"
Josee never even looked up from her Marie Clare magazine. "Ugh. I've seen enough foilage in my lifetime."
Talk about being cynical.
