50 Shades of Seattle

29/Aug/2012

“Oh, you’re from Seattle? You’re so lucky!”

This is coming from the Delta ticketing agent in Detroit. It’s been raining for weeks and it’s the end of June.

“Yes, I suppose, why?”

“Have you ever read fifty shades of Gray? Christian is from Seattle!”

I roll my eyes and try to be patient when I explain, in very slow words, “He.  Is.  Not.  Real.”

Someone asked me once if I’d ever been to Forks. You know, where the Vampires live?

I usually reply with something not-at-all snarky like, “no, generally I hang with werewolves.”

  1. Gah. It’s a good thing she is not responsible for anything more serious than air travel (though I am really not sure I’d want her handling even that for me).

  2. my nephew went to Portland/Seattle earlier this summer and all these girls kept asking if he was going to Forks. I finally had to ask what the heck Forks is and why are they asking you! LOL
