London (no, the one in Ontario)

When I first moved to Montreal in 2004, people would tell me they were going to “London” and I’d get excited for them because I thought they were going to the UK.  Then they’d say “London, Ontario” and it would be slightly disappointing.  Nine years later, last night, I’m checking in at the airport to fly to London, Ontario for the first time and the woman says to me “can I see your passport?”  When I explain it’s Ontario, she said “oh, sorry” and gave me a disappointed look.

Some cosmic loop has just closed.
