Urban – #AtoZChallenge

9 Comments

The word “urban” is making me want to cheat and find another word.

Although, according to Merriam-Webster online, urban means “of, relating to, characteristic of, or constituting a city,” the word always conjures houses on the outskirts of a city. The city is where the businesses and apartment buildings are, and the residential areas are urban. No?

Or maybe I’m thinking of the suburbs. Which I suppose means sub (below) the urbs (the city).

I’ve only once lived outside of the urbs. On a farm where I shoveled horse poop for a living. Such a glamorous job, and yet so rewarding. I know some people just can’t stand to reside in the city, and some wouldn’t live in the country unless they were dragged there kicking and screaming. Me? I’m comfortable anywhere. I love the quiet and I enjoy the constant noise–mostly because after a while I don’t hear it anymore.

Then again, crickets are everywhere in the summer.

Want something to drown out the crickets? Then buy my A to Z Challenge-inspired novelette, “All Good Stories”! You won’t hear them over the sound of your own giggling.

It’s a romantic comedy about two best friends who belong together – Xavier knows it, but Jupiter has her eye on another guy: a shady character named Bob.

  1. When I was young living in the city was all I wanted. All the things were there, like movie theaters and malls. Now I am surrounded by sagebrush and happy as a clam–looks. Who can tell, maybe clams are permanently depressed with a smile on their shells?

  2. I quite like living in a town, I can’t bear too much hustle and bustle, but I don’t like it too quiet either!

  3. My experience is that the suburbs have their own noise that has to be ignored.

  4. I live in what you would call the ‘burbs. Quieter and my building overlooks a golf course. Big city, but almost not 😉
