    Re summer vacations: as an adult, especially a child-free one, I think that it doesn’t count as a vacation-vacation if you’re taking time off to visit family/in-laws especially if you’re visiting them on their turf. It’s a trip, yes, but not a vacation. It can count if you meet them in a desirable destination, but doesn’t always.

    I used to live in Minneapolis, so if you’re driving east you’re totally going to the Corn Palace.
    I LOVE THE CORN PALACE. Totally retarded. I bought up all their postcards featuring the Corn/Swastika motif. Also, yes to Wall Drugs. And Mt Rushmore was way fancier then I expected.

    Ack! I still haven’t thought of my favorite moment & the pressure is KILLING ME!

  4. Penny Nickels says:

    Also, It drives me CRAZY GO NUTS when you bleep out conversations about goodies for me. (I secretly love it!)

    I love that photograph. It makes me laugh every time I see it. I only wish I could remember enough of the original story that went with it so I could worry about those kindergarten kids again. Was it Mother’s Day that prompted those clowns with spiny erections? I cannot remember. But I love that photograph!

  6. Shane says:

    Seriously, the Corn Palace was one of the most torturous things I’ve ever experienced. Mom took us to Pizza Hut after, and even bought breadsticks (which was unheard of at the time) but it didn’t help soothe the wounds.

  7. Tara says:

    Dear Jim,

    My condolences on your living with “my face.” I, too, experienced a well over a year of “my face” during 2007 – 2008. “My face” has mostly healed, with only the occasional flare-up in times immediately preceding stressful a moment. Good luck to you!

    Warm regards,

    PS My apologies for the typos above. It’s hotter then hell here and I’m also tired, but not drunk. Not drunk at all.

    I INSISTED that we go to Corn Palace on our trip back from Mt. Rushmore earlier this summer. I had seen it on the Food Network quite a while ago. While I was disappointed to find out that the building wasn’t actually made of corn, (I’m sure they mentioned it on the show, but I didn’t remember that) I was still excited to be somewhere that was on Food Network. My husband agreed to go because it was free admission.
