Eh?

7:43 AM

This is a silly sketch I did to remember one of the funny moments when Alison and I were visiting Prince Edward Island. At one point, we were going for a walk through the national park, and a guy rode by on a bike and said "Big snake in the road, eh?!" And he kept riding off before we could respond. Alison and I, caught off-guard by both the thought of snakes and the reality that Canadians actually say "eh" at the end of their sentences, didn't know what to make of it. We just started laughing about it, because we couldn't tell if he was warning us about a snake he had just passed, or if he was asking if we had seen a snake on the trail we'd just walked. In hindsight, we realized that he was dressed like a park ranger and had a bucket with him, so he had probably been tasked with the duty of finding and relocating the alleged snake...but it was just a funny interaction for us at the time. We definitely watched for snakes on the rest of the trip, eh!
