Returned from Ohio yesterday; my first foray into the flat, green fields of the American Midwest.
Quite beautiful… as was the smorgasbord of chain restaurants. Taco Bell. Wendy’s. Chik-fil-freaking-A. Golden Corral. Bob Evans. Steak and Shake. Cracker Barrel (!!!). At the groom’s house the day before the rehearsal dinner; hamburgers, beans, macaroni & cheese, and Bisquick strawberry shortcake. For breakfast in the morning, Cinnamon Toast Crunch. And in the hotel convenience store, Hot Pockets and Teddy Grahams and Snickers ice cream bars and Chex Mix and Lifesavers….
America the processed, America the Super-sized. America the beautiful. America, home.
