...for a different kind of girl

silent surburban girl releasing her voice, not yet knowing what all she wants to say about her life and the things that make it spin. do you have to be 18 to be here? you'll know when i know.

just so you know, there's a chance you'll be humming a John Mellencamp tune the rest of the day...

Do you ever come around here and wish, "Wow, I wish there was more kick ass FADKOG action going on!" (before you answer, you should know I'm being held together by a pretty weak emotional link these days, so, you know, no pressure...)?

Well, I'm still down there with my little love letter (do not all love letters use the word 'orgasm'?), but today, you can also visit me at Midwest Parents, where, thanks to a very kind request from Heather at Cool Zebras, I had the opportunity to guest post. I used the opportunity to write about growing up in a small town, and raising my sons today in this same, no longer quite so small town. After spending some time here, I hope you'll head over to Midwest Parents and visit me there, too (weak emotional link, remember...).

Hey Sweets! Let's shore up that weak link! Left you a comment over there...

My word verification is plites, which looks an awful lot like pilates. Think the internets is trying to tell me something?

It seems a tad lame, given that we've never, in point of fact, actually met each other (altho I do cherish the minute or so we spent on the phone last fall), but I'll do what I can to shore up your weak emotional link. . .

I've never been in a small town, though growing up a limited area was home, it still was a continuous city for miles and miles. Now that I am older I would rather do big towns, where I have an enormous amount of things to pick from, even though I mostly do the same little things every time.

(returns from Midwest Parents)

Great post! But then again, I'd expect nothing less from such a find seamstress of gripping prose. :-)

But, as someone who spent the first 18 years of his life growing up in The Small Town about which said Mellencamp song was written, I don't have a sentimental bond to that place. Granted, I had a hard time leaving because it was the only place I had known, but I never felt at "home" there.
