Home Sweet Home

Daily Prompt: Share a story about the furthest you’ve ever traveled from home.

I have traveled a lot – mostly around the United States and Canada.

I’ve been out in Death Valley all by myself, I’ve been to New Orleans, and the Midwest but the furthest I have ever been away from home was when I moved to Toilet Town to be closer to my family.

Toilet Town’s cultural center is Walmart.  Brodozers huff and puff up and down roads that literally go nowhere. Women here still get “ Tramp Stamps ” and the guys wear Concert T-shirts that they actually bought at the concerts they went to back in the 70’s and 80’s. These are the real things and not reprints you can buy on line.

How do I know? Because they look old and worn, that’s how I know.

Toilet Town, jammed between Seattle and Tacoma isn’t as far away as  the beautiful places I’ve been to in Canada, New  Orleans or Chicago, or Boston.  But in the grand scheme of things Toilet Town  is as far away from home as I have ever been in all of my travels.
