Small towns

This story on msn.com cracked me up: http://www.msn.com/en-us/lifestyle/smart-living/22-things-you-only-understand-if-youre-from-a-small-town-so-many-parking-lot-hangs/ss-BBs47ph

The authors got it right. Almost everything they listed as “things you only understand if you’re from a small town” was something I could relate to.

One exception, of course:

In my hometown of Clinton, Illinois, our favorite high school pastime/sign of coolness was cruising the town square. In hindsight, it was pretty ridiculous. We’d get together with friends on a weekend night and drive in circles, never actually going anywhere but feeling seen while seeing everyone else from school

No wonder my dad had a fit about the waste of mileage, and time!
