I’m back home, folks! And off to the supermarket because the Dominican food is nice but I haven’t had any borscht for days, and I’m jonesing something major.
The older gentleman who is bagging the groceries says, “Ah, I can see you are showing off a new coat. It’s beautiful! Although I like that dark grey you have, too.”
When I first started living in a small town, this kind of thing would totally freak me out. But now I love it and find it endearing.
