I was having a conversation with our nice lady on Reception at work today. Our offices are in Slough and we exchanged some mild hilarity at the comparison between living in Slough and Dallas. She found it especially amusing that I might miss Slough. This gives me a new perspective on the move. For it is true that, when compared to Slough, moving to Dallas seems like moving to a strange paradise land of beauty of peace, where the casual thoughts of the liberal philosphers roam free among the forests and green hills of a blessed land.
