When I think of the Toronto Sportsmen’s Show, I think of all the things I steadfastly try to avoid: namely, the outdoors. It’s no secret that I’m not the camping type (I prefer glamping 9 times out of 10, and I prefer a 5-star hotel 10 times out of 10), yet I’ve made peace with my somewhat strained relationship with Mother Nature by using the tried-and-true avoidance technique.
Alas, I have two boys. Two boys who would rather spend every waking moment (and often, even sleeping moments) under the sun or stars. Two boys who hear “It’s time to eat chopped liver!” when I holler “It’s time to come inside!” and therefore, look at me with horror and disdain and often, drop to the ground in protest. I mean really, guys, the sun will come out tomorrow. But it’s time for bed now.
Hence, I’ve learned to become the outdoorsy type in small steps – the kind of steps used in a 12-step program where the only wagon I can fall off is the one I’m riding during a family-friendly farm adventure. So, I’m going out of my comfort zone completely here and taking my boys to the Toronto Sportsmen’s Show.
