Might live in Michigan..

i moved to michigan from Los Angeles.... and again suffered culture shock.

I drank Soda, got offended when the boy, pumping my gas called me Mam...
I don't think he had a sarcastic bone in his body... and was afraid of little bitty me... Pissed off at perceived slur and dressed in leathers.
Had to to try all the funny named beers... like Blatz!
I did not know how to play Euchre... still don't...Was treated like a slow cousin for that one.
Had the information operator correct my pronunciation not once but twice..
When trying to get a # in Milan... not the Italian city apparently, but MY Lan!
Also, not Lima like peru... but more like the bean...

But had people stop to help me without provocation or harm in their heart.

All and all, if other parts of my life hadn't been such a Black Hole of pain, I might have adapted.

Oh... and when I moved there... I hadn't been or driven in snow for 6 years...
and drove 30mi to Jackson... fountain of culture and education... in penal code!

I didn't own a coat... other than my leathers... and motorcycle boots...

Good thing that was before I grew Tits... or I would have froze them off
