Provincial - the word was a silent premonition, and utterly correct. With absolute clarity I realized I can't understand supposedly bright and educated men my age who have lived their entire life in the same city and almost the same job in this day and age. A six-month jaunt at age 28 is insufficient. By comparison, my life to date is simultaneously exotic and bewildering.

I would much rather have had drinks with an Englishman in New York who listens to NPR while tooling between the city and DC, the manual tranny smoothly shifted as the BMW glides between lanes.
