living in The Capital

I love living in the capital city. It makes me feel important.

When I was living in California, I thought all those people living in Sacramento must be slightly more important than me. I can only assume that that's how those people in the other, non-capital cities in Idaho must feel about me now.

It's only fair.

There are some perks to living in the capital. For example, when I walk down the street and I see a guy with glasses and the remnants of white hair, I think, hey! cool! It's Larry Craig, Idaho's most famous resident! And I get ready to give him a pleasant smile. But I'm pretty sure every instance of this has been a false alarm.

And when I'm trying to pay my taxes last minute, I can just skip on over to visit my friends at the state tax office, no problem.

Also, once I was at a The Cheesecake Factory, and I saw Dee Sarton, local news anchor. And then I did my excited face. You'd better believe that you won't be running into Dee Sarton in the outskirts of the capital!

As you can see, the enticements to live in the state capital are endless. ENDLESS. I recommend it.

I guess that's really all there is to be excited about in Idaho. I kid, I kid. Sort of.

Ha. OBVIOUSLY, you've never visited. Idaho is fantastic. You should see the zoo.

I did feel more special living in Sacramento than you did living in Danville. Actually I WAS more special.

Utah's state capital has the added enticement of Mormon celebs. Double whammy. Too bad I don't live there.

Oh, and the nation's capital has the enticement of EVERY state capital's celebs. And Barack.

How do you know it wasn't Carolyn Holly that you saw at the Cheesecake Factory?
