…and it pinkens your teeth while you chew!
Tonight Brandi and I went for about a three or four mile walk…and it rained. Ok, well it started off just barely sprinkling and I figured that it was nothing, but at nearly the halfway mark, it really started coming down. Mind you, it wasn’t too bad after all because it was still something like seventy-five degrees out (at 1:30 in the morning!), so maybe it was refreshing – I’m still not quite sure yet.
I also started noticing some of the little details that you typically don’t pick-up on during a normal, busy day. It’s kind of odd because Gaylord’s still a fairly small town, with only like ten or fifteen thousand people, and I used to absolutely loathe the place – blah blah, there’s nothing to do, etc, etc.. – but between walking around recently and all of the local writing I’ve been doing for the paper, I’m actually seeing that this place really isn’t so bad. The little things like all of the landscaped homes and businesses, or even just the sidewalks along the residential streets – and the fact that I can walk my dog pretty much anywhere in the city at 2:00 AM without having to worry about running into trouble – it figures that once I finally get a plan to leave the area that is financially sound and actually has the potential to happen, then I begin to enjoy living here!
Oh well, I suppose as long as I can find somewhere down south where I can walk my dog without getting mugged, it’ll all work out for the best, even if it does mean making laps around the parking lot of a gated community…
