Harrisburgia - the weird, littel vortex south of Sioux Falls
Posted in the Worthing Forum
I just started a new blog called Harrisburgia. By Harrisburgia, I mean the weird little place a few stone-throws south of Sioux Falls, SD. I hope to shed some light on the confusing situation which continues to develop here. Step into my brain and experience first-hand the oddities that stare me in the face everyday.
Those of us not originally from Harrisburg have admittedly made a strange choice in now calling Harrisburg home. I say "strange" choice, rather than "irrational," "regrettable," or "dumb," because I don't want to step on any local toes. Perhaps it's been this fear of toe-squishing that has caused many of us to grow accustomed to doing and seeing things that, if we had not already taken them for granted in Harrisburg, would strike us as bizarre.
For those of you who have made the more common choice not to call Harrisburg your home, Harrisburgia may still be of interest. Please check in from time to time to what kinds of weird, backwards, humiliating, and/or painful bullshit we Harrisburgians experience everyday.
Ménage à Trois...quatre, actually
This ménage is not the fantastical, messy 3-way we all secretly hope to drunkenly stumble into some day on a beach in southern Mexico. No, this menage is a backed-up 4-way where nothing goes in or out smoothly. Not on a beach, but in the purgatory of corn fields between Sioux Falls and Harrisburgia. The dreaded 4-way stop.
There is a time and place for the 4-way stop. Perhaps a lonely intersection in the country where to winding highways meet. A quiet residential area where a couple through-streets come to cross. Maybe in a place where civilized people can be counted on to follow simple rules to avoid a breakdown in the social order.
Harrisburgia is not this place. There are two 4-way stops that must go for two very simple reasons...
