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" features a creative and curious girl who loves science, her little brother, and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a MG novel and several picture books with STEM elements and dogs.

A workshop member had the nerve to correct my novel, set in MN, for using the word pop! Her ability to critique lost all credibility at that moment. 😉
