I went to 3 different cities today, including the suburb I live in. Small little cities, maybe town is a better word for them. They’re new. In each of them, 20 years there was only a Waffle House and a gas station.
Now both places look exactly the same and not for the better. They are both full of boring strip malls which have the exact same stores in them. A Mexican restaurant, Japanese place, Chinese, Subway, Home Depot, Lowes, a pet store and a vape shop. Boring.
I went to 2 new doctors in these places. One of the doctors was pretty boring too. On an I Pad thing, I had to fill out 6 pages of boring questions. You know, I’m old, I can’t tell you the name of every type of medication I’ve ever taken in my life or how many times I’ve been sad.
For medications, I just wrote “All of them”. Then there was a huge space for me to write all of my strengths. Wtf? I just wrote “Not filling out forms, that’s for sure”.
I finally got back to my neighborhood/village. The vibe there is different from the other 2 towns, mostly because there is a church every 2 blocks and billboards that say:
is the answer...
(I don’t know what the question is)
Life is short. Eternity isn’t.
Those are just the billboards. The churches have funny messages on them too. That’s my neighborhood. Hello!
