You can take the girl out of the city


So I consider myself a small city kind of girl. I like theater and live music, a bit of traffic at the farmer’s market adds to the buzz, and I love city lights at night. I hate the traffic and the smog though, and the thought of living in a city like Edmonton or Calgary again makes me want to poke myself in the eye.

But we live in Edson. Which is allright, most of the time. I mean, there are no lines at the grocery store, and you can get anywhere in town in less than 8 minutes. Small town living, it’s good.

But then once in awhile, there are some weird things that happen that remind me that I am still a city girl at heart. When someone stopped me on the street a week after we’d moved here and said “You’re the new pastor’s wife and you live in that yellow house.”

Or when, as last night, I find out that one of our major fundraisers for Jr. Forest Warden’s is THE MEAT DRAW. Am I the only person who has never heard of this? The way it works is, you go down to the legion on Wed or Saturday night, and you buy a ticket. You sit around drinking until the draw. If they draw your ticket, you win.

A cooler full of meat.

It just seems so very strange to me. Sean tells me they had them where he was growing up to.

Yup. City girl.

  1. Maybe this means I am city boy who enjoys innuendo… but “A MEAT DRAW” sounds like the kind of thing you shouldn’t be able to say with straight face…

    And a cooler full of meat sounds like a prize at a bachelorette party…
