Now, a lot of these things are geographical because while we were on our Christmas trip I spent a lot of time with my nose buried in an Atlas and looked up all kinds of towns
Can you believe that I used to think that the only way to get to Alaska from the lower 48 was by air?* Yep. I thought you had to get on one of those fancy flying contraptions called an aeroplane.
* actually I have to qualify this one: i only thought you had to fly during the summer. because during the winter you could drive. on the ice, ya know. i know. somebody shoot me now.
I always thought that the Jersey Shore was actually a beach in Jersey that was next to a river.* Cuz I thought that Jersey was West of New York. Without access to the ocean.
*yeah, a beach next to a river that ran between Manhattan and N.J. and all the Jersey people sat on the beach and stared at the Manhattan skyline. wha...? sorry to all my N.J. friends. you all know i'm a dork.
I also used to think that Washington D.C. was right smack dab in the middle of the U.S. Because, hello, how can they govern the U.S. unless they are right in the middle of the continent?*
* i still don't exactly understand why it's a district of columbia and not a normal state...?
It's almost like out of sight, out of mind. I don't understand certain problems indigenous to certain states (and therefore people of that state) because not only have I never been there but I might not be correct in my assumption as to where exactly the state is...let alone what's going on in said state.
Are people on the East Coast as clueless as to what goes on on the West Coast as we are to them? Or am I the only one? And if I am the only one, then I'm passing the buck and saying it was my geography teacher's fault...that time he made us memorize the entire map just wasn't good enough cuz it didn't stick.
Please tell me that you have had some stupid idea or assumption about something that just wasn't true.
Pee Ess...Just for sh*ts and giggles, here's one for ya. I used to think that a Cricut was pronounced Cry-cut. Yikes.
