Sarah: Reasons

Why do I enjoy so much the drive from Salt Lake to Spring City?

It could be that the sky seems wider,
It could be the gas station that has a Britney Spears sticker vending machine that marks the two thirds point of the trip,
It could be the house in Fountain Green that has an eagle design incorporated into the brick on the side of their house (the actual brick, y'all, not just a mural of some kind),
It could be that Moroni, population 1280, has its own opera house,
It could be how friendly everyone is,
It could be the old cemeteries with their variety of headstones,

Or it could be that once I get here, my dad will give me a pair of old sneakers to throw up into the shoe tree, neighbors will come over and serenade me with a song about Oedipus, and my mom will teach me how to polka. Yeah, I think that's it.

Oh my gosh. Oedipus AND the polka?

I know, this was a good visit. There were planned excursions, lost (and then found) car keys, and a barn dance.
