I know what you mean about WaRshington Lizzie ~ built a house and stayed a summer in the Tri-Cities area a couple of years ago ~ those darn "down-winders"...couldn't wait to get back home here to southern california where like, you know, like the language is like really totally like right and like really really easy to like understand.

Just kidding! The folks in WaRshington were great to Angie and I! But I will say, my best friend and his family lived there and RESEMBLE your comment very much so.

I dunno about WarshINGTON, but hubby tried to break me from saying "warsh" when we first got together. Now I'm back on my home turf, where mom, and grandma, and everyone says warsh. He's fighting a losing battle.

Born in Milwaukee, WI
Kansas City, KS and Mesa, AZ for the elementary, middle school years.
Westerville, OH (near Columbus) for the high school years.
West Lafayette, IN for college,
Dallas/Fort Worth area, TX since then. Lewisville at the moment.

I grew up learning quickly whether to say soda, pop, or coke so I would fit in.
