Complete and utter confusion…

The daily prompt says tell us about a time when you felt out of place.

Confusion often reigns supreme in my life…

From a cherub who is talking about something that I can’t understand, which has happened more time than I should probably admit at times.

There are a lot of times when I’ve felt out of place…moving to Country Town was one of those times, moving to each of the versions of Country Town over the years have been those times, moving from the city to the country was definitely a time for feeling out of place.

Moving to a remote community of 300 people that was 300km (186 miles) from the nearest town, 220km (136 miles) down a dirt road was one of the worst times for feeling out of place.

Going through the first funeral there and hearing people wailing out loud prior to the funeral, that was definitely a moment of feeling out of place.

Travelling…that definitely brings up moments of feeling out of place.  New York was fine, even with the number of people and the craziness there.  Fiji was fine, there weren’t too many moments of feeling out of place.  Singapore was pretty good.

Hong Kong on the other hand was pretty full on…the worst of all can be seen in the picture below.  I’m not sure what to think of the name of the store…let alone the old lady in the other ad and the fact that there are in-store demos.
