|Non-Canadians should note that I am not abandoning my love affair with the apostrophe here. Tim Hortons is an extremely popular Canadian coffee/doughnut/sandwich/bagel/muffin/etc. shop that is named after a hockey player and does not, in fact, include an apostrophe in its name.|

|Panel 1: Marie
is sitting on a couch in the Davies College common room, reading a
newspaper. Casey, smiling and holding his cane, comes up behind her.|
Casey: I have to go sit in Tim Hortons. Want to come along?
Marie: I beg your pardon?
Casey: Timmy's. I have to be there at noon. Come with me.
Panel 3: Marie narrows her eyes.
Marie: You need to sit in a doughnut shop.
Marie: At a specific time.
Marie: And you want company.
Panel 4: Casey heads out, a rather jaded and cynical Marie on his heels.
Casey: Wouldn't you?
Marie: If this is going to be one of those baffling things about you that you never bother to explain, please just tell me now...
Alt-Text: I have a sneaking feeling this may just be one of those things.
