Deep Thoughts by Laundromat Patrons

laundromatgeezAs part of Geez’s Experiments With Truth issue, writer Natalie Boustead decided to tap the laundromat patrons of Toronto and see if she could cull some deep thoughts from them as they sorted their whites and darks. She set out “question of the week” boxes at a handful of local venues and proffered different questions for four weeks, with “small hopes that I would find amongst the bitter rubble of Torontonians, small gems of wisdom, beauty, and truth.” Like Boustead, you won’t be disappointed with the results. Here are the questions and my favorite answers:

Week 1: Does heaven exist? Why/why not?



Week 2: What would you like for Christmas that has no monetary value?

Peace on earth. And my real teeth.
