The Queen of Deadpan


It's a long weekend here in Toronto. Canada Day. What better way to celebrate Canada's birthday than to visit the CN Tower, the world's tallest free-standing tourist trap.

Tickets were on sale, too. And there was a long line-up. While waiting in line, we discussed reasons why it was built. (We later learned that, currently, the primary purpose is tourism. At the time it was built, the tower was for telecommunications - an expensive antenna).

Adult: Bakit kaya nila ginawa ito? Ang taas-taas!
Rama: Para exciting.

Hey, that's as good a reason as any!

And I suppose this is really what drives these builders anyway. :-)they dream up a project first then find a purpose for it later.
