Another boring romantic, that's me.

I live in a small town. [1]  With 22,000 people it's the smallest place I've ever lived in.

I took my wife to her belly-dancing class, looked around ...

  • I was related by marriage, in various ways, to 60% of the women present.
  • I knew 20% of the women present as friends of my wife.
  • 20% of the women were strangers.

What I'm saying is that it was nice to show up at a place I've never been to and just know people without having to fool around with socializing and 'get to know you' chit-chat.

[1] Sort of - this is where the kids from the really small towns in this part of the state come to see what the Big City is all about.
