This afternoon I felt like a real urban dweller.
I live downtown. I transit or walk to work. We do drive, but I like to walk where and when I can, because it's hella easier than parking downtown.
But the moments when I stop myself and go, Hey, Small-town, You've Made It! are far and few between.
Today at lunch I was running errands, walking through the softly-falling snow, gettin' my business done. I was wearing a grown up lady wool coat, a dress, high heeled boots, a jaunty hat. I was swinging my handbag and bustling and hustling with the best of them, up and then back down 9 city blocks.
I'm livin' the big city dream.
(The big city dream that today screams HAAA, SUBURBANITES, It took me 10 minutes to get home and you are still stuck on the road trying to get out of downtown!)
