Let’s talk a little about what its like socializing in town.
I’m sure you people in Seattle wouldn’t know how to relate, I mean you liberals think a small city is like Everett or something (oh look their port only has like four cranes and can unload just one supertanker, how quaint!), but here on the east side of Washington State we have quite a few small little towns. One issue in small little towns is socializing, and not in the way you would think.
It’s not hard to meet people in a small town like Chewelah. You run out of the “oh I don’t know who that person is” list really quick. It’s great.
