Yay for 300!!  

I'm not talking about the movie, either.  I'm talking about DHD (Dry Humor Daily).  Today is my 300th post!  Yipee!

Now...  Business.  I'm leaving Washington today to fly back home to good old Fort Worth, Texas.  I can honestly say, I've missed Texas.  But before I go, I'd like to share a few observations about Eastern Washington.

#1 - There are espresso shacks everywhere!  I would hate to see what would happen to these people if they all just shut down one day.  It would be like a real-life zombie apocalypse!

#2 - There are tons of mattress stores around here.  How in the heck do they all stay in business?!  Is everyone living in the northwest chronically tired or something?

#3 - Idahoans are the butt ends of a lot of jokes around here.  I haven't yet gotten a good explanation as to why.

#4 - It is May and the temperature can still be in the 30's in the mornings.  What . . . the . . . heck.  The overnight lows in Fort Worth are higher than the all-day highs up here in Spokane.  Why does anyone inhabit this part of the country?  Cold = No Bueno.

#5 - There is no plural form of the word "highway" here.  Why?  Because there's only one.  That's it.

In spite of the cold weather and over-abundant mattress outlets, I'd live here.  It's a nice town, Spokane, WA.  (You wouldn't catch me in Idaho too much, though, that's for sure, lol.)

Congratulations on making it to 300- I love the new header! The entire Pac Northwest is that way. Who would have thought there are highways with only a lane going in either direction? And I think Idaho is the closest thing we have to a state-side Canada, so that's why.

As a fellow Ft. Worth inhabitant....what? Only one highway? How the f do they survive with only one highway? What are they thinking? I can't even imagine.

@ Ashley The catch is, they call other major streets "highways." I don't know what part of Fort Worth you're from, but a street like Rufe Snow would be a highway to them, LOL.

Congrats on making 300 posts!!

Being from Manitoba, Canada, I thought you meant 30 degrees Celsius and had a good laugh at myself when I realized that you meant Fahrenheit! lol

The conversion is 30C=86F - so you can see why I was laughing at myself. I couldn't understand how Spokane would be so hot this time of the year...
