Was yesterday. June 20 marks the day WV officially seceded from Virginia and became its' own state. It's been 160 (? - Don't ask me, I'm an import) years and people STILL don't realize WV is NOT the Western part of Virginia.
Placing an order on the phone:
ETW: "Yes, West Virginia."
Customer Service Person: "I have a cousin who lives in Roanoke. Is that close to where you are?"
ETW: "No, West Virginia and Virginia are separate states. Roanoke is in Virginia." (in my head: "Did this person really graduate from high school?").
I think that's why WV is shaped like a big F You to the rest of the US. Look at it:
Turn your right hand, so your palm is facing you, and try it. ;-) You'll see the obvious evidence that the people of WV have a great sense of humor!
The Evil Twin had the day off, so we went to the grocery and did a couple other errands. It was a good relaxing day and we were able to get stuff done around the house and chill a bit, too. :-)
Hooligans, I hope you have a lovely Thursday. And, I will be back soon!
