Do you live in a small town? What is your hometown like?
I no longer live in a small town, but I grew up in one. Population 500 counting the dogs on a good day. It was the best and sometimes the worst place to be. Everyone knows your business, but at the same time, when you are in trouble or sick and in need, everyone also has your back. It is still there, but even smaller than before. No stoplights, no stop signs, and there hasn’t been any local law in town since the mid 70s. Whatever happens is relayed to a County Sheriff who may or may not show up.
I loved going to school there. My mother was a teacher. She was my fifth grade teacher, and it was the worst school year ever. She had to be extra stern with me and then my sister the following year just so the other kids wouldn’t think she was playing favorites. Oddly enough, the kids all felt sorry for us. It was the only year in all of my 12 years of elementary and high school that I wasn’t called a teacher’s pet.
