I get this on the job a lot:
"Wow! You get to travel all over the whole U.S.?! Y'all aren't set for one region? That's so awesome. And you probably love that you really get to see a ton of cities
so you can decide where to live next year!"
Response? Yup. Sure does let me see this great nation and fall even more in love with it. And as for the proverbial "next year" part, usually, I smile and nod. But here's what I really wanna say:
"Chyeah buddy traveling helped me decide, darlin'! I'm goin' right back down where I came from! People act differently, sound sweeter, and it's not frigid all the time. Ha, and I'm not sure how y'all pick Yankee/Mid-West boys over what we raise... Just sayin'."
Rant? Perhaps. I think I just sortareally miss home.
But dear Yankee/Midwest/West-Coast-Best-Coast sisters:
Please don't take offense. I love you infinitimillion. :)
