If you missed it, here is Part I
There is birthday parties at amusement parks,
and showing anyone who came to visit all the sights of the City. (Las Vegas, Nevada)
and Street Vendors. My sister used to holler, "Free water! Ten cents a glass!" Nothing is free in the city.
And of course there is all the eating out. Sweet, blessed restaurants. I can't help myself. "Can I take you order please?" sends goosebumps up my arms.
Until we moved here.
I was fifteen. You know the rap - the townie moves onto an acreage. Wanting a horse, a garden, maybe a few chickens. That way we could play country girl now and then, in between begging for trips into town. Thank goodness my parents never let me get the horse. I would have had no idea what to do with it and I'm sure I lacked the commitment required for such a huge undertaking. We did have a garden but my mom did all the work. We even had chickens one year, but that's another story.
The point is that as much as I loved living there and enjoyed the benefits of country life, I was still always a city girl living in the country. Something like, you can take a girl outta the city...
I love the convenience of being able to shop whenever, wherever. I love the availability of anything you want or need. I am an avid people-watcher... which requires people to watch.
So what did I do?
What else could I do?
Obvious choice here!
I married a country boy.
