"You're not in the Midwest, you're in the crappy part of Colorado."

This cracked me up. I was surprised when Kristin told me once in Chile that she was from the Midwest, because in my mind, Minnesota...isn't. It's too far north. (Plus, frankly, everything over on that side of the country is kind of an amorphous blob to me. When my mom and I were visiting colleges on the East Coast four years ago (!) I was surprised it took so long to drive from Massachusetts to Pennslyvania.)

Speaking of which: there's no way Pennsylvania is the Midwest.
