Questions courtesy of Friday Five
1. What makes you homesick?
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say being away from home. I mean, what kind of question is that?! I’m not away from home so I can’t say what makes me homesick. Hello?!
2. Where is “home” for you? Is it where you are living now, or somewhere else (ie: Mom & Dad’s house, particular state/city)?
Fort Worth, Texas is home. I’ve lived in a few places, but Fort Worth captures all the things I loved about the others and wraps it up in a little cowboy culture. Besides, there’s something to be said for being a Texan.
3. What makes it home for you? People? Things?
Fort Worth feels like home. It’s a completely subjective thing that I can’t quantify and could probably never explain it. When you talk to people, they actually talk back to you. I mean – you can have an actual conversation with a stranger. In most places, the people are worse than friendly, they’re impersonal to a fault. Fort Worth is a big city with small town values. I can’t be anywhere else.
4. Where is the furthest you’ve been from home, miles-wise?
1198 miles. Great Guana Cay, Abaco, Bahamas, where I proposed to my lovely wife.
5. What are your plans for this weekend?
Tomorrow morning I must wake with the sun and begin my quest. I’m standing in line for Buffett tickets!
