Midwesterner at Heart

July 10, 2003 |

Dear Garrison,

I'm in love with a girl from California. Problem is, although I was raised in Portland, Oregon, I am a Midwesterner at heart. I just wanna settle down, have a couple kids, and a garden. But she wants to travel the world, explore the wilderness, and generally have fun. She's a pistol, full of energy, love for life, and all that western hokum. What's a fella to do?


James, there's plenty of time to have kids and raise a garden after you've explored the wilderness and seen the world. You need to have stories to tell those kids and wonderful memories to think about as you cultivate your tomatoes. A woman who's full of energy and loves life sounds like a woman you ought to get to know better.
