Daily Prompt: Connect the Dots

In a small town like mine, there is an obvious lack of things to do. A lot of times people look to others for their entertainment. It’s big news when someone dyes their hair a certain color or someone got pregnant or moves away. This is what people can talk about. If you are going to make a change in your life, or you make a questionable decision, expect to be the talk of the town.

The way my town works is a lot like high school. Something will happen and it’s all anyone can talk about for a few days. Then, someone else will do something and you will be forgotten about.

Don’t ever expect to have secrets in a small town. Everyone knows everyone. Everyone has a friend who has a friend who is your neighbor’s hairdresser and she told them the big news that you painted your nails black, and that must be a sign of depression.
