Five and a half miles into my walk today I was passing McDonald's, and since they have all-size drinks for a buck, I paused my timer and went in to get a soft drink.

There was a guy in line ahead of me and he looked at me, looked puzzled for a moment, and then asked, "Haven't I seen you all over town today?"

I acknowledged that I'd walked a good part of it.

"Are you lost?"

No, not lost.

"Because if you are, I'll give you directions. I know where everything is around here."

The idea that I was just out walking seemed a little foreign to him, but at least he was nice enough to ask.

Because if I'd really been lost? Directions might be nice.

I might have been tempted to ask for directions to someplace not in your town.

You know you live in a small town when ... :-)

I grew up in a really small town just outside Pittsburgh PA. My Mom knows just about everybody, and is like that guy who offered you directions. Except that she would have insisted upon putting you in her car and driving you back home. She has no understanding of why people would walk for exercise!
