You're from Kansas, eh?

"So, do you live on a farm? Do you have cows and chickens?"

Those are real questions I received last week when I was in WA to get Jenny and Alexander. One of her neighbors is from Norfolk, VA and is currently working in WA for the Navy. He seemed to think that because I live in Kansas that I've probably got cows and chickens and live on a farm.

I didn't think of it until later, but I wish I'd said that no, I don't have chickens but I did have three children and sometimes that felt like I was being pecked to death by chickens.

I probably live in a bigger city than he does. I know Wichita is bigger than Norfolk.

I wonder if he'd be just as surprised to find out I have running water, too...
