Just because you’re eager to leave somewhere, it doesn’t mean the place from which you’re departing is automatically terrible.
Before my peers burn me at the stake for daring to write a column defending the impenetrable bubble of Wilton, let me just address that I fully understand anyone who doesn’t like it here. I know that there are people who are dissatisfied with their own lives and therefore seek to be better than others through materialistic gains and overall rude behavior. There are also only like four shops in our downtown, and our library still uses PCs instead of Apple computers. I get it! But let me try to convince you that our little slice of Connecticut isn’t all snobs and overpriced sweet shops — or at least to help you cherish the time you have left here.
