Mobile Minutes: Fishing Poles & Boots


Where Darco and I live isn’t exactly country, but it isn’t exactly urban…

We live in a subdivision along a lake, but it’s three miles away from the closest town. Because of this, as I learned today, you get a little bit of everything.

Soccer mom’s with SUV’s are completely normal. Our borderline retired neighbor is an avid golfer and likes to keep his hair long. In many ways; it all makes sense for suburbia USA.

That was until today…

As I made mention; we live near a lake. The only ‘major’ lake in the metropolitan area. I can’t wait to wake up this summer to the noise of bass boats cruising the glassy water. Today though, after finishing my evening run, I was walking back to our house when the strangest things crossed my path…

Strangest person that is…

Right in front of me, coming out of a backyard of some random person, was a high school boy wearing cowboy boots, a tight fit hat, a book bag…and…a fishing pole.

He was pretending to cast it around the sidewalk while he traveled home. You could tell he had been out fishing after school.

It was an odd reality that set in; humorous of course, that where we live is much more modern to the experiences of Darco and myself. Every-so-often though, we get a reminder that we’re still just a cast away from the land of honky-tonks.
