You Know You Are In The Midwest When......
Midwesterners have a reputation for being nice. Movies make us look ridiculous with this. But, I do have to say there is something to it.
We are standing in the parking lot of the mall in Sioux Falls, SD at 9 pm tonight scanning the visitor guide and haggling for a better hotel rate over the phone (thank goodness our cell reception returned... Verizon we couldn't here you in Colorado...sigh- sorry Adam, but it is true!) Ok, so making phone calls. The back of the van is open with the suitcases showing, the kids are running around burning some pent up energy, the dog is going from window to window in the van and we have out of state plates, and a trailer - obviously we are not from this town... you get it.
So. We get asked not once, not twice, but three or four times if we needed help or directions. How nice are you guys :) It is so good to be home.
