TBWCYL Day 247 - Caving In

Yesteday I was tasked with "Doing what Society Tells Me" and I tried my best. I obeyed speed limits and school zones, I was prepared to add "fries with that" had I been asked and I did want cash back when I went to the store.

The funny thing is, once I started looking for the directions of society, I couldn't find them. I expected to see signs stating "You must buy this" or "Try NOW!!!" but hard as I looked it just wasn't there. I am back home in Midland for the weekend and maybe that has something to do with it. Small towns are a different breed. I realized I was in a small town when, while driving with my dad to breakfast, the local radio host started reading the school lunch menu for the
surrounding areas. How quaint is that?

So, I guess society didn't really need me to do too many things but be a law abiding citizen. Not to bad a way to spend the day.

That is all,

There seems to be a bit of a loophole there – it didn’t tell you which society’s rules to follow.

Still, admirably performed.
