Pros and Cons of a Small Town

So this is the prompt today....
Go to a coffee shop. Order a favorite drink. Write about what makes you happy and what makes you sad. Or write about anything you'd like! Bonus points for including a photo from the coffee shop.*if you can't make it to a coffee shop, at least leave your usual space and write someplace new. con of a small town is that I don't know where a coffee shop is nearby....there use to be one on Main Street...but they seem to have just recently turned it in to a clothing going to a coffee shop is tricky. I mean I guess I could have gone to McDonalds....but that seems lame!

So...yeah I could have gone somewhere else to write someplace new.  But that would mean that I would probably need to bring a notebook.  There isn't a lot of WiFi hotspots. Honestly, if I had planned ahead I might have been able to think of something before everything closed.  But this prompt came faster than I thought.  It would have been great for me to go outside and write but it was really really rainy....and I am worried that it might snow....oh the joys of high elevation.

As you can tell....there are some cons.  But some pros....less traffic! Personally thanking the guy that sold me my food today because I know him. We bought a house super fast....and knew the people all around us. The town feels like a family though there are a lot of new faces with the oil fields. I like knowing my neighbors and feeling like I can walk across the street and talk to them.  So, though I didn't go somewhere else to write this....that's okay with my small town.
