traveling

What's the furthest away you've ever been from the place you were born? How did you get there? Why did you go? Did you return or even want to come back to where you came from?
I never traveled as a kid; slumrats don't usually too far. Once or twice, a few friends an' me went to the very edge've the city an' were stunned by the green fields that we could see off in the far distance. As an adult, I do most've my business right in the city. I travel sometimes, but it's to the same places, mostly; Rude usually takes the travelin' assignments, 'cause he likes gettin' out've the city, an' I like stayin' in it. Out've the couple've places I've been, though, the farthest was prob'ly Junon; I've been there a bunch of times, though the first was when I went there with Tseng an' Rude on one've my first missions. Got there by private helicopter; one've the perks've my job is bein' trained an' licensed to fly ShinRa's fleet of choppers, an' havin' the clearance to take one whenever you need to. We did some work in the lower levels of the city, which wasn't so bad if you could ignore the fish-smell that was fuckin' everywhere; a lot've it reminded me've Midgar. The upper levels, though, the air was so clean that it was actually hard for me to breathe. That's another reason I don't leave Midgar a lot; I've spent my whole life breathing the polluted, nasty air, an' it makes breathin' clean air really hard. Honestly, whenever I'm away, no matter where I am, I just can't wait to get back to Midgar. The place can be a bitch, but it's my city.

It's been a shit week. I'm so fuckin' glad it's Saturday an' there're no weekend hits or leg breakings or missions or anything. I think I'm gettin' a drink with sure_shot_honey tonight; should be interesting. I've got this weird feeling that things're gonna devolve into a drinking contest an' I'm gonna get my ass kicked.
