When I was 16 years old, I got a job working as a historical animator (basically a tour guide who dresses up in periodic clothing) at Fort Malden in rural Ontario. I was far from my home in suburban Nova Scotia and was boarded for two months by a local family and boredom led to rebellious teenage things like smoking cigarettes, sneaking out of the house and partying with cute, older boys. In Amherstburg you either listened to country music... or country music. Without much choice I begrudgingly would turn the car radio to one of the various local country stations. After hearing "Whiskey Lullaby" I was hooked and have been in love with this hillbilly genre of music ever since.
So when I had the chance to rent a pick-up truck for a week while our car was in the shop for hail damage I hollered yeehaw, grabbed my vintage cowboy boots & prepared for 7 days of living out my cowgirl fantasy.
The pick-up didn't have the luxuries of my Audi that I've become accustomed to (particularly the built in GPS, reversing camera, blindspot indicators & heated seats, it's a hard life I tell ya!) but driving this monster truck (which I basically had to leap into & fall out of) was incredibly fun and had me daydreaming about living on a hobby farm & listening to country music day in and day out.
I may live like a city slicker but I'm a country gal at heart! Yeehaw!
