p is for perfect

I wrote a quick advertisement for my room that I’m moving out of (I’m not sure if I mentioned this already, but I’m moving house at the start of December). I wanted to put the ad on a “moving to Vancouver” website so any travelers coming over here would see it and hopefully take it! It’s not really my responsibility to fill the room, but I want to do all I can to help. Anyway, I just received an email back from the site administrator thanking me for being the first person to submit a perfect ad-meaning one where he didn’t have to email back for more details they’d left out. It seems strange, but receiving that email tonight made me feel really good! Even though it’s just something small (a perfectly written room advertisement on a website is hardly something to print off and save in your “life achievements” box envelope).  However, hearing the word perfect is pretty satisfying! It’s not a word people use very often.

Confession: When I said all the leaves were brown, it was a lie. The leaves in Vancouver have turned the most beautiful colour. First they went orange, then golden yellow and now some of them have turned bright pink! There is one particular street near my house that is tree lined and it looks pretty spectacular with all the pink leaves. Pictures to follow…
