Cheat Funeral

Chris’ car, nicknamed “The Cheat” after the Homestar Runner decal that came with it, died one day after nine years of faithful service. Using a medley from “How I Met Your Mother,” Chris and Sarah plan a funeral to honour the passing of the car. Dave is invited. He brings recording equipment. And the funeral becomes a music video shoot. The Cheat would have loved it.

The first picture Chris took of Sarah

Sarah eats dill dip

We met on December 30th, 2005 at a New Year’s Eve Eve party thrown by Dave MacKenzie, our good friend, and man of honour, at the legendary Oxford House. Chris took this picture in the midst of  pressuring Sarah to eat a bit of cookie dipped in dill cream cheese. It probably took Chris another 4 years to really appreciate that Sarah eating dairy and wheat was not in his best interest!
