my son calls Markham "Mirkwood"

Toronto, 2015.01.11

After seeing some of the Tolkien movies, Ken's taken to calling Markham "Mirkwood". It's more fun - after all, which is more interesting, a stretch of car dealerships and a sea of detached housing in vinyl siding, or an impenetrable forest full of giant spiders, hostile elves, and Other Nightmares?

Mind you, the city we're now dubbing Mirkwood certainly has the better options for food!
