I picked up a pair of couples from The Delta a few nights ago after discussing the food they told me that the couple in back were from outta state. We discussed a few other places to go while they were in town (Noho's ... go to Noho's!!!) and then I asked where they were from. Turns out they're from Boulder, CO (where I'm from) and they're on their way to Kalispell, MT (where I lived a few years back) so we were having a good time talking about what was, what is, etc.
While we were chatting we decided to see if there was any other places we've seen/been alike.
Guy in Back: Um ... Vail, CO.
Me: Yup. Went up there from Boulder to buy some ice cream one day.
GIB: Um ... San Jose, CA.
Me: No. But I lived in Lodi, CA for a bit. Interesting town that one.
GIB: Your turn.
Me: Um ... Pendleton, OR.
GIB: No. Where's that?
Me: As close to hell as you can get without falling in. Speaking of hell ... Cheyenne, WY.
GIB: Gawd no. That's on my top 10 list of worst places in the country to live. You lived there?
Me: Yup. Lived and worked while I went to school in Laramie at the Univ.
GIB: Jesus. What in the world would make you live in Cheyenne, Wyoming?
Me: Their school had the best cab driving courses in the country.
Me: Kidding. I'm kidding. Jeez.
I'm bettin' they're looking that one up as you read.
