the, um, joys (?) of living in the south

i live in the south. southerners like their football. they like pro football, college football and dangit they love their high school football.

at least here in happy dalton they do. that’s why it took me, oh, 30 minutes instead of five to get home from walgreens today. every road in my route was blocked off because this is homecoming weekend at dalton high school and what homecoming weekend would be complete without parading the football players and cheerleaders around town. on the city’s fire trucks.

now i am all for school spirit and town spirit, but i get a bit disgruntled when i have to drive all around town to find a way home just to discover that that route too has been blocked.

sigh. i just hope there isn’t a fire.
