A midwestern joke

Most of my life was spent in Chicago and the nearby suburbs so this joke is an homage to my heritage.

I’ve read a lot about how and why comedy works and this joke works on every level if you share my midwestern frame of reference. If you don’t “get it,” let me know. 😊

I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" is about a creative, curious, kind and messy girl who loves science and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a YA novel about a family broken apart by a secret and a misunderstanding. Future books in the Aliana series will include dealing with forest fires, learning about clouds and animal habitats.
