Growing up the son of Croatian immigrants … my life was full of unique experiences.
And, from what I could tell … these experiences weren’t typically afforded to other kids in my neighbourhood.
You see, by the age of 11 … my parents expected my sisters and I to be able to ‘handle things’ for them.
These ‘things’ included writing letters on their behalf … renewing insurance policies … calling Sears to schedule a repairman … and reading and filing the mail – among others!
One advantage of growing up in our house was the exposure to words that weren’t exactly English … or Croatian, for that matter.
One of my father’s classics was (and still is) … “un-believe-it”.
If the Leafs won … he’d shout “un-believe-it”.
Come to think of it, if they lost … he’d shout “un-believe-it” too!
We never knew if he really meant to say ‘unbelievable’ … or ‘I don’t believe it’ … or ‘I can’t believe it’. Whatever the case … he used it a lot!
What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Well, nothing really.
That said, when it comes to this Vancouver-based role … my dad would definitely say it’s … ‘un-believe-it’!
