My dad loved to swim. I can think of him my whole life saying yes to swimming always. He would say Today is a swimming day or Let’s go for a swim, Nance and all would be right in the world.
My other cousin, Sarah, is a classic obstinate Macdonald.
20 years ago she came to Toronto for a visit and my dad offered to take her out for lunch.
She had been a vegan vegetarian for several years but my dad still took her to Harvey’s for lunch.
