I am back! I haven’t made a trade in a long time; I have been focused completely on school. I am free now, at least for the next six months, while I do an internship in Jacksonville, Florida. My wife and I drove to Jacksonville from Salt Lake City, and it took three tiring days. I loved it though because I have never seen any states east of Utah.
In Iowa, the Missouri river flooded and we had to drive through water on a section of the freeway. We then had to take a detour that took us to a small town in Iowa. We decided to stop at the local grocery store to get some treats. My wife and I felt like we were celebrities because when we walked in everyone, I mean EVERYONE, stared at us. I almost felt insecure, like something was wrong with me. Maybe they just saw how gorgeous my wife is and they were wondering how I, being so ugly, got her. I guess our style was just kinda foreign to them.
While I was waiting for my wife to go to the potty a lady asked me if I was from “around here.” When I told her I’m from Utah she said, “Wow, Utah! What are you doing out here?!” (I didn’t know Utah was so cool). We talked for a little while longer and she was a very nice lady. Other than that, Nebraska is too long of a state, St Louis has a cool arch, Kentucky has crazy thunderstorms, and Georgia has the most drastic southern drawl I’ve ever heard.
I didn’t have much time to make a trade and post before I left. I wanted to trade along the way here, but I guess I will have to trade on the way home. Literally ten minutes before I hopped in the car, I woke my little sister up and asked her what she wanted to trade me. She had the perfect item: a rubber band ball. I could not believe she would make that trade. It was her lose and my gain. She got a TV and I got a large rubber band ball. She said she inherited the rubber band ball from my older sister.
I know millions of people right now are in need of a rubber band ball. I will probably receive emails from all around the world because it will be a hot item. I hope Gmail can handle the email volume. I have not counted the rubber bands on the ball and I do not know the diameter, but I do know it bounces high.
