Fruit or Nut?
When I first told my parents that I was dating my now husband who was originally from CA, my Dad's first question was..."Is he a fruit or a nut?" I'm from a small rural community in VA. Although it may be wrong, most of the people in my neck of the woods believe that Californians are a little umm...weird. I think Hollywood and the Hippy movement has given CA a bad rep. Needless to say, I didn't answer my Dad's question and I briefly recall rolling my eyes.
Fast forward 5 years and my now husband and I are moving to LA. I have to admit that I'm a little apprehensive. I think its because of the reality TV movement. I don't want to be famous, an actress, or rub elbows with the rich and famous. I just want to live a simple life and soak up the reality that I won't have to shovel snow! OK...earthquakes may be a little scary. I guess I should school myself on what to do during an earthquake. My thoughts right now is to buy a one way ticket back to VA!! Bring on the hurricanes, snowstorms, and tornadoes...I can handle it. Those are predictable!
But apprehension aside, I'm really excited about CA! Maybe deep down...I can relate to the fruits and nuts.
