The best thing in the U-Haul store

The best thing in the U-Haul store

So after the mess-up with the U-Haul in Montréal, U-Haul generously sent me a gift certificate for the trouble they caused me, Pickles and my parents. I went on the U-Haul store on Sunday night to see just what exactly I can get there.

There were boxes and there was packing tape. There were packing chips and even special little envelopes, but I don’t think that anything could ever top the truck antlers.

Pickles is reluctant to let me get them, even though we have a gift certificate for it. “We’re trying to draw less attention to our car!”

I think they’re hilarious. My little sister says that we should buy them, give one of them to my older sister and my brother-in-law, and keep the other for ourselves. That way, we can affix the one to the front of the van, and rather than being a deer, we can be a unicorn. I would seriously be okay with that.

Crazy dog

This dog belongs to my parents-in-law. It everyone all the time.

This dog belongs to my parents-in-law. It bites everyone all the time.

Pickles’ parents own a dog. This dog, while adorable to look at, has very sharp, pointy teeth and a strong love of jumping on people. Pickles and I went to visit her family, since her grandmother had come up from Texas to spend some time at the family cottage. I met a cousin I didn’t know I had, spent some time with my in-laws and enjoyed a few days of gorgeous weather. And the dog didn’t bite me once. I didn’t give it the chance to.

Edit: Pickles took this picture herself. I think it looks pretty good. :)

Weird things that my parents forgot

Here are a few of the weird things that my parents left behind

Here are a few of the weird things that my parents left behind

I am very thankful for the help that I received from my parents. They rented a U-Haul truck for us, they helped us to carry all our stuff from our old apartment to the truck, they helped us to set up the kitchen in the new apartment, and they hired movers to carry our stuff from the truck to the new apartment. This would have been a much bigger pain without them.

That said, they left some weird things behind when they left. Here are a few of the things that my parents forgot when they went back to Stratford: A box of Passion Flakies, a pair of reading glasses, a black notebook and pen, and a napkin with “Tyrannosaurus Rex/King of the Tyrant lizards” written on it. The napkin is our favourite.

Edit: After writing this post, I noticed that my parents also left a squeeze-bottle of salsa, and a bag of tortilla chips. Also, my dad said that he left a pair of gigantic sunglasses that he wears over his regular glasses, but we haven’t found it yet.

My parents are hilarious.
