One of my friends has a high-powered job in Phoenix and is well respected. He recently had dinner with a rich friend who asked him, “Why are you living in Phoenix? There’s no life there. And no culture there.” He criticized Phoenix as a nothing city. Nothing interesting. Boring. Why would anyone live there? He told my friend to move out of Phoenix as soon as possible. He told others at the dinner table that anyone who lives in Phoenix is not a mover or a shaker. No companies are headquartered in Phoenix. He said people just lead boring lives in Phoenix. And he ended his tirade with a question, “How can you be mentally stimulated in Phoenix? There is no culture. How do you find intelligent people?”
I guess I’ve got it all wrong for living in Phoenix. I’ve been missing out for over 40 years. Wasted my life here. This pretentious snob, by the way, lives in Houston, Texas.
So let’s see what Houston has to offer. Like this Houston home that’s currently for sale. Looks like it’s oozing with culture and life.
Just like the fans gracing the walls, I’ve become a fan of Houston. I wanna be a mover and shaker in Houston too!!
