One of my best friends visited today because I won two tickets to a community event, and he agreed to join me. We had a few hours to kill when he got here, and rather than sit in front of the t.v., I suggested we go to a couple interesting parts of town.
Now, remember, I live in a small town, so there isn’t a ton to do, but there were a couple places I wanted to show him.
First stop: a deeply haunted antique store.
There are probably a dozen antique stores in this area—because that’s what you do at the intersection of rural and tourist—but this one has left quite an impression.
Second stop: a bookstore that specializes in UFOs, conspiracy theories, and “alternate history.”
Third stop: a hole-in-the-wall French bakery.
Giving this tour gave me a new sense of appreciation for my unique, for-now home, and I’m glad I did it. (
But I’m still ready to move back to a city.)
