I Resent That!

I was visiting Seagrove Beach last week, which we all know is the only reasonable place to stay if you want the proximity to Seaside Beach, Florida, home of The Truman Show, the fru fru shops, and the children running in the grass donned in Laura Ashley, while live jazz plays in the background.

Ah, picturesque. Too much class, one could argue, as thanks to the film and the urbanites, it has been over-discovered.

Meanwhile, 30 miles away, and a world apart, lies the hedonist haven of Panama City Beach, the place of my Spring Break '92, the Miracle Strip, and, reluctantly, the Redneck Riviera.

Now. That term seems to be making its way into the online dictionaries. How nice. BUT, must the entire emerald coast be damned for the sins of the seedy? I love both Seaside and Panama City Beach, but they are apples and oranges, which brings me to my title...

It looks like they are trying to rid the Riviera of all rednecks. Have you seen all of the high rises they are building in PCB? They are tearing down all of the old hotels. The Miracle Strip is gone. I have been going to Edgewater in PCB for almost 20 years. The Rednecks never bothered me.....maybe because I R 1.

Admittedly, I haven't visited PCB in three or four years... Don't tell me the blue eyesore by the pier is gone!

I revel in the rednecks, grilling hamburgers on the motel patio. I seek that shit out. Makes me feel like a god. Or, rather, reminds me I am one.

It's touchin' to find out that my kind is still so loved... even though, apparently, my huckleberry is an evil god... I am gettin' confused though. One minute he's "a sexy beast", and then, before you know it, he's playin' "god" on somebody else's blog?

I think god's two timin' me. ;)
