Earlier this week, I spent 48 hours in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Prior to this trip, I’d never been. Things I’ve heard over the years about Minneapolis:
- It’s really cold.
- It’s in the middle of nowhere.
- It’s the place that no one wants to go to, but doesn’t want to leave when they get there.
- It’s really, really cold.

So, given that this will be filled with many short stories, I thought it was only fitting that I start with mine.
