“Dragging Main” has to be one of the quirkiest things teenagers in small towns do for entertainment. The premise is simple. On Friday and Saturday night, drive your car, packed with your friends, up and down Main Street. I know what you’re thinking, “Whoo-hoo! How did they ever come up with something so exciting?” But with the right group of friends, it really can be fun. Cars keep their windows down, so you can even laugh and converse with kids in other vehicles. Could you imagine doing this in a large city? A long string of obscenities is what you’d probably hear from the other vehicle—or worse—have gun pulled on you. This is where growing up in a small town is such an advantage, especially if your small town is isolated a good distance from larger ones, like the one I grew up in. It’s more than a sense of community, but a family, knit tightly together. If you ever have the opportunity to visit on the Friday or Saturday night, keep the windows down and bask in the difference.

Janel, I LOVE your posts! I would reply more often, but most of the time I have a baby in my arms so I don’t get to say anything – just read. I really had a laugh with this post – so true, so true! Dragging main…who would have thought that was such an entertainment!
