Taking it Easy on the Tourists

During the perfect weather Saturday afternoon I was walking my dog through Georgetown and met two couples who were in their sixties and had just arrived in town. One of the wives said, “This is all so nice! We’re from Florida and have never been here before. We hope you people appreciate how beautiful it is here!”

The reply that ran through my head was, “Oh don’t worry, I lived two years in your hellhole of a state, so trust me, I definitely appreciate being here. And although I know what you mean, please don’t call me ‘you people’ when I’m the only person you’re talking to. It makes me feel like you view me as a member of a separate species or something.”

But they were awfully nice, so I just said, “Oh, we do!”

She said, “Good, that makes me feel better.”
