Back when I was a comedian, there was a one-nighter at a bar in Coos Bay, Oregon. The seating arrangement was what’s sometimes called “in the round,” which means the audience has you surrounded. That’s a good thing when it’s a good audience. The fact that I came up with the mnemonic device in the third panel at one of my performances there should tell you something.
Washington and Oregon have a weird relationship, like twin siblings that resent each other and pick at each other, but will be the first to defend each other if someone else attacks them.
Oregon is a beautiful state, full of wonderful people, and nobody’s enjoying watching them learn to pump their own gas more than I am.
Note from Missy: I remain delighted with the panel 2 joke about the schwa. ə!
