A Sliders Story...
South Bend, Indiana--This is so incredibly cute, I nearly built a ship in a bottle: my brother and my niece went up to Lake Michigan this last week (she's three). On the way back, they stopped at White Castle™ for some "sliders," since we've never had one here, and never will.
Alice Cooper played here in 1975 (yes, the "Welcome to My Nightmare" tour), and didn't return for 28-years. Yup, we're that kind of stick-in-the-mud town, we're boring. But it's a beautiful region, Michiana, and I'll probably die here. Things could be worse.
Anyway, they got a few hamburgers...and my niece started petting one of them, saying, "Oh, baby burger, it's OK, awwwwwwww." I'd say I'm now worried she might be becoming a Republican,™ but she's three. That's the best excuse there is.
