    From Sea To Shining Sea

    | Seattle, WA, USA | Geography

    (I’m in the middle of sharing interesting facts about Seattle to a group of 20. Unfortunately, one tourist has been talking on the phone the entire time, making it hard for others to hear me.)

    Me: “Now, back when the Space Needle was built, it was the tallest building west of the Mississippi River and it—”

    Tourist: “Wait, which of these rivers is the Mississippi?”

    Me: “Well, that’s the Puget sound to your right. The two other large bodies of water you can see are Lake Union and Lake Washington—”

    Tourist: “So, where’s the river?”

    Me: “You mean the Mississippi River?”

    Customer: “Well, duh.”

    Me: “I guess about 1600 miles east of here.”

    Customer: “So, you can’t see it, then?”

    Me: “Not from here, no.”

    Customer: “Oh.”
