I am one of those people who kind of loathe the fact that they live in a place where nothing big ever happens. I am in Parkville, MO and it seems like people all the place have a more exciting life than I do. This may sound weird to say, but the idea of being around crime is one of those things that would give me a huge adrenaline rush.
I am not going to say that nothing ever happens here, but certainly not anything so exciting it makes national news. While there are drug crimes, robberies and the typical stuff, there are no huge riots, police standoffs or any of the things that make all of these other places seem so exciting to me.
The crazy thing is that my family that lives in Kansas City and Saint Louis cannot say the same. They are always complaining about how so much happens there and they wish they were in a quieter community. This may sound like a good thing, but when it is so quiet that you can actually hear yourself think, you will think otherwise.
I am not implying that I want to live someplace where things like murder and violence are commonplace, but I would love to see some kind of excitement. I don’t even care if it is as simple as some kind of animal escaping from the zoo. I just want to feel less bored than I typically do.
I am saying all of this, but I am sure that I would think differently if I had to worry about crime all of the time. I guess I had better be thankful for the place where I live and thank my lucky stars that I am alive and well and able to see another day.
