    If it’s a southern small town, then you’re going to have the mayor, the eye doctor, and half the town council attending the same church every Sunday, too.
    And the high school whose parking lot has five tractors in the kids’ reserved spots every day.

    Gosh, my town is smaller than this town. We’re not big enough for homecoming, football coaches, school sports, dairy queen, or stop lights… I do know the names of the four other people who graduated with me though!
