Reasons we hated our small town (and believe me, we had a list in high school):
- no excitement
- everyone knows you
- you know everyone
- same old hangouts
- lack of options
So this morning I had to call a local business in that small town. I told the business owner my name and my mom's name.
But when I hung up the phone, I realized that it's kinda nice to have conversations like that. It's kinda nice to personally know who you're talking to. Now for the updated list.
Reasons I love my small (home)town:
- no excitement, no crime, no headline stories on the news
- everyone knows you or your mother
- same old hangouts, bars, restaurants, and you know what to expect
- lack of options for your spouse to cheat and if they did, you'd know about it
Shhh... just don't tell my mom.
Speaking of which:
