The most amazing thing happened on the weekend.

You simply will not believe it! I’m still reeling from the shock.

I went into Cheese Encounter on Saturday to get a new bottle of Heartbeat Hot Sauce and there was a young woman working who I’d never met before!

This is Caitlin and the aforementioned saucy sauce:

Well we started talking.

As you do.


She has a turtle named Gary.


She got her turtle when she was ten years old. I did too!

Also, more excitement, if you can handle it. We both get our nails done by the same person!

Well done Brii, you get to do nails for the two women in this city who have turtles named Gary. If that doesn’t float your boat, then I don’t know what to tell you.

Annnnnnyway. There are a few more interesting things worth knowing about dear Caitlin.

She moved here about three years ago to attend Lakehead University and is finishing up with the Education program.

She just started at the Cheese Encounter and is currently being trained by one of my favourite downtown people, Number 160, also known as Ida.

Caitlin loves reptiles, reading great books, and eating cheese. You actually have to love cheese if you work at Cheese Encounter. It’s a rule!

It was awesome to meet you Caitlin!
