You know the one I’m talking about. Don’t you? When worlds start coming together, and you see that look in your partner’s face. That look that says “All is right with the universe now. I am fulfilled.”
I saw that look the other day on Mrs. Birdman’s face, and it was awesome. She almost looked awestruck, which is a new look for her, because it takes a lot to impress her. I guess I should mention that we had a very excited, married friend with us for this little tryst. They don’t want their face or name in here for obvious reasons, so we had to be very careful with the camera. It was kind of sneaky, because they parked their vehicle in a grocery store parking lot and walked over, so as not to raise suspicions, and that added to the naughtiness. I’m pretty sure their spouse didn’t know about this at the time, even though I’m sure they do now. How could you not tell about something so fun, so new, so freeing?
I am telling anyone who will listen, because it was something I had never done before, but will definitely try it again if I get the chance. Yes, you guessed it.
We went for lunch at End Of The Thread in Brighton, Ontario.
From the moment we walked in, to the moment we got in the van to go home, we were marveling at all of the amazing things in there. We went in because Mrs. B had some friends bring her a sandwich from there one day, and she loved it. When our unnamed friend asked if we wanted to go to Brighton for lunch, we jumped at the opportunity. I didn’t know where we were going, but it doesn’t matter when you’re in the company of greatness. My sweet darling asked if we could go there, and we reluctantly said that we didn’t mind.(She was buying.)
The store is located at 15 Main St. in charming downtown Brighton. It’s right across from Sobeys, which is the only place around that you can get Vernors Ginger Ale in the area.
Steve is the co-owner of this emporium of mirth and wonder. He and his partner, Tracey have put this together with a mixture of genius, good cooking, and what seems to be ADD. I’ve never seen such an eclectic mix of “stuff” in one place.
Oh yeah, all of that moustache paraphernalia reminds me that Change The Topic is putting in a Movember TEAM this year. Yes, I have two MoBros and one MoSista helping to raise money and awareness for men’s cancers. I let my lady pick the ‘stache last year, and it was the most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen. It looked like a squirrel’s dick on the bottom half of my upper lip. Gross.
We have a few openings for anyone that would like to join our team (Scotty P). Maybe you are on the fence about it because your lady is threatening to withhold the threesome if you grow a tiny beaver on your lip. Take it from me, brother; she was going to chicken out at the last minute, like she always does. Perhaps you were going to go solo, because you really want to raise awareness, but you have no friends because of your disgusting BO and ingrown facial hairs. You really want to fit in somewhere, anywhere. Well friend, we’re extremely friendly here at Change The Topic. Some might go so far as to call us “desperate”, but whatever, we’ll take what we can get, and we’re super fun to hang out with.
We will be having a “Shave Off” on Halloween night, and if you live around Colborne Ontario, we can all meet up and do it up right. (After trick or treating, of course.) Let us know if you’re in for it via the usual routes.
Anyhow, back to the regularly scheduled blog post.
We found a table near a beautiful piano desk and rustic looking harvest table, and that was where we decided to battle our lunch when they brought it over. The seating is probably the coolest part of the whole thing. Tables, benches, and chairs were scattered around the place, some were hidden away in nice private settings. It’s just an great setup.
I feel that I should mention their gluten-free choices, except that I don’t know what they are. I do know there are some, because there were signs and whatnot all about the place. I think there is stuff about it on their website or maybe on their Facebook page. If there isn’t, then I guess you’re on your own, pendejo.
That was the end of our adventure for the day, but I sneaked back in to grab a business card. I thought the quote on the back was very cool, so I thought I’d share it.
To sign off, I’ll just say that the ambience, service, and food was terrific, and I don’t ever remember enjoying a lunch that much, ever. I’m sad that the ice cream bar wasn’t open, but I’ll be around next summer. I actually think I’m going back today, and I’m also going to see my friends with another extremely cool store. They have what I’m told is a massive transformer robot, so I’m pretty excited to check that out. I’ll be sure to get photos of the interesting craziness that they come across in their travels. I haven’t seen them since last year, and I hope I get time for a good visit, because they are the kind of folks that you can’t help but miss.
