    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    The red Volvo. Parked on an abandoned street. Back door ajar. Strange happenings.

    Cold brisk morning. Cracked iPhone. Three projects approved and finished. Hump day.
    And that concludes staff’s presentation...

    Hungry. Leftover bean soup? Not for lunch. Long meeting this afternoon. Don't want evil looks.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
