Up There With Schenectady, Sheboygan and Rancho Cucamonga

A brief open letter to a reader in Walla Walla:
Hi there, reader. I have noticed you in my Google Analytics because you visit the blog fairly regular, but also because I think your city name is funny. But you always find this blog by Googling my name. May I ask why? I mean no offense, I’m just curious as to why you always Google my name instead of just bookmarking my site.

Do you think your town name is funny too?

    I Google your name every time in hopes that you would, one day, post something just for me. I knew you could not resist a town name as funny as Walla Walla.

    In all seriousness, I Google your name to find this site, because I use many different computers at work (where I most often read your blog). And I feel guilty bookmarking sites on shared computers.

    Lots of love,
    Wasting time in Walla Walla

  3. Wait, anonymous, who are you? Do we know each other? If I knew someone who lives in Walla Walla, I'd like to know, if only so I can write you postcards and giggle about your city name ever time.

  4. There's the old New Jersey joke: "What's Santa's favorite town?" "Ho-Ho-Kus!"
