She paid for her items, looked at the cashier, and then did something I've never, not once, seen happen in the town I moved from:

She smiled and told him to have a nice day.
You saw me at the Shell? That's so nice to hear.

Get used to the smiles and friendliness, it seems to be part of the culture.

FUNNY!

Seems like Lexington is too big for some, too small for others. Some think it's too liberal...some think it's too conservative. For some it's too Southern and others think it's too Northern. Etc. Lexington is right in the "middle" in so many ways. That's exactly the reason I like it though. Like Golilocks says of the baby bear's bed "it's just right!"

We picked Lexington out of everywhere in the US to live. For us, it was at the top of our 50 cities to live in.
