Coming soon…a list of things I miss from Utah.
In the meantime, I must say that it feels good to be back in my culture. Ahhhh Eastern Washington. Eastern Washington and Eastern Oregon are culturally very similar. Flipping a blonde ponytail goes a lot farther here than it did in Utah. I think it is true that men are better looking and women are worse-looking here, which obviously works in my favor. Also, when passing in hallway/sidewalk/aisle/whatever people make brief eye contact and give a vague smile. People are SO NICE here! In Utah, people (strangers) avoided of eye contact and never smiled. It was hard to get used to. I always felt rejected.
In other news, living in one of my tomato plants is a frog that seems to have survived the journey from NE Oregon. I’m on the second floor. I hope I don’t find it dead. I hear it croaking.
