How suburbia gave my then-girlfriend quite a scare...
Ha, Gordon, love it!
Let me tell you a quick story...
Long ago, my girlfriend (who is now my wife) came out to visit me where I was staying in suburbia... This was over two decades ago...
She was an inner city girl. So she drove out to my family's suburban house...
(I was actually living and working in the city of Sydney at the time, but visited Melbourne - where my family lived, and where my girlfriend lived - every month or so...)
Now, as I've mentioned before, behind this house is a creek. Back then, on the other side of the creek, were cows! (The cows are long gone now...)
But that gives you an idea... It's still suburbia, but there were patches of "ruralness" around...
As she drove out to the suburbs, she started noticing some trees... Then even more trees...
She started to panic!
"Have I left the city?" she thought to herself!
She eventually found the house (this was in the days before smartphones and everyone carrying around a GPS)...
But not before a "scare" that she had left the city, and was heading for the countryside!
She wasn't used to so many trees!
I still get a kick from that story... and I still tease her about it every now and then...
She teases me right back, and says how she used to be able to hear the cows mooing whenever we spoke on the phone...!
