City Girl Meets Country Life
Here is my little sarcastic tale, " City girl meets Country Life. " I have learned in the two years that I have lived here in the country that it is completely different from the city. There is not one darn thing to do out here, well at least nothing that wouldn't require a raincoat and full-cover water-proof boots. The local Wally world and local coin car wash are over run by teenagers on weekends because these are their hangouts. Let me tell you there's nothing more annoying than having to shew away rowdy teens, so you can wash your car without them trying to sit on it. There are no clubs none just little bars that have like 80 year old cowboys standing beside jukeboxes in them. They don't even have a decent Cinema for crying out loud, I swear it is like watching an episode of Heehaw.
If you think city drivers are crazy you will change your mind, once you nearly get ran off the road by a big over-sized truck with clucking chickens in it. Or better yet one of those huge wide load trucks with a mobile home on it trying to go down a road the size of a sidewalk, "talk about a tight squeeze." Laws are not even in check here, they turn left on red lights and over half the roads do not have guard rails or sidewalks. So if you get ran off the road by one of those crazy hillbilly road warriors you had better hope you can swim or climb.
I am not saying that it is absolutely terrible here. The country has its good qualities as well lots of privacy mainly because your nearest neighbor is like ten miles away but still very private and quiet. You could lay butt naked in your back yard and nobody would ever see you, well maybe animals but they don't call cops or own phones or cameras so you should be pretty safe. There are also so many beautiful trees and surroundings even I have to admit the country has such gorgeous scenery.
All and all I am one city girl who is just ready to go back home. I have tried the quiet country life and it just wasn't for me. I even kind of miss the sound of traffic and super bright lights at night all I hear here is crickets and howling animals. The thing I miss the most though is having fun hanging out and going to night clubs every once in a while with some friends, actually going shopping in a real department store instead of just Wally world all the time, getting my hair done by my favorite spiky haired tattoo hairdresser and not having to drive an hour or more to get to the nearest store. If you are into quiet private areas with no trespassing signs every where. Driving a tractor or four wheeler than the country could be something you might be able to adjust to but as soon as I save a little more cash this city girl is going back to her roots I so need a mani-pedi my nails are horrid.
