Are you snowed in in Pamukkale?

Like Sunny said it makes them sound more interesting I suppose.

I sometimes run into people who think I am a spy. Before, I would deny it. But I thought about ways to have fun with this by taking it the other way, and telling them that I am even worse than a spy. I tell them that I'm working with an ultra-secret joint program between the US, the UK, and the aliens. I say that I am a spotter for suitable specimens for the aliens to abduct and conduct experiments on. This saves them time in searching for the specimens they need and from abducting unsuitable ones. In return for our cooperation, the aliens supply us with the technology they use with the propulsion and inertia-dampening systems they use on their ships. Being something of a conspiracy-theory enthusiast (although not a believer), I can spin a pretty good yarn. Next time I run into a "former MI-5/MI6" agent I will ask them if they have been briefed in on the program I'm working on.

Expats do tend to make certain conclusions about people and spread rumors... I'm single, a former special agent of the USAF Office of Special Investigations, with no wife or children, living alone in Turkey. The thought that I just enjoy living here is inadequate for the conspiratorial mind.
Actually, there IS a conspiracy theory about the US government tolerating abductions of humans in exchange for alien technology. The aliens intend to abduct people, regardless of what the government says, so the government is trying to get alien technology in exchange for assisting them. When I read about that theory, I thought it was perfect for me!
Better than saying I'm a former MI-5 or MI-6 agent any day.
