First, to my American audience: Is upstate New York part of the mid-west? Specifically, are Rochester and Buffalo midwestern towns? I ask because Rocastrians I have talked to say ‘yes, we’re on the border but Buffalo is echt Midwest’, but the Buffalonians I talked to today denied this hotly.
Secondly, to my Australianist audience: tell me about your sun and moon stories. Specifically, are the sun and moon married to each other? If not, who are they married to? Do they have kids?
[These questions are only related by the fact that they were both in my brain together, but special bonus points for anyone who can relate them more amusingly.]
