A Random Wednesday Conversation Starter

Question One: What do you tell people who aren't from your neck of the woods what the single best thing about your neck of the woods is?

Question Two: Wow, how badly phrased is Question One?

The privacy. It's true that there are some crazy, dumbass people in this state but they mostly leave you alone. No one is in your face about stuff. And there are lots of nice people too.

I usually tell people about Margaret Falls. It is easily one of the prettiest places on Planet Earth. It is as natural a setting as it can be while still accommodating visitors. It is like a cathedral in the woods which ends in a spectacular waterfall.

And the question was phrased a bit awkwardly, but I took your meaning, Sir, so all is well.

When people hear I'm from Minnesota, they automatically go to how cold it is, and that's true. I counter with the summers though (so much nicer than the oppressive, humid ones in my native Florida) and Christmas. I love having beautiful, white Christmases.

That it looks nothing like the musical, which was actually filmed in New Mexico.

It's the nape. The best thing about our neck of the woods is the nape.

Most people, when I say I'm from NY, think I'm from NYC (where I haven't been in 9 years now, BTW), so I spend SO much time disabusing them of where they THINK I'm from, that it pretty much frizzles from there.
