Why I don’t live in Seattle

My mother was visiting my brother in Seattle this weekend, and while she was unpacking she was talking to my five-year-old niece, Rachel, and she asked, “Rachel, do you know if there are any dry cleaners near your house?”

Rachel looked a bit confused and answered, “My mommy has a dryer.”

My mother then explained, “Actually, a dry cleaner is a place where you take your clothes to be cleaned and pressed, and then they give them back to you in plastic bags.”

Rachel then perked up and informed her, “Linda, we don’t have places like that in this part of the country.”
