My list went something like this:
Small Town #1, Michigan;
Small Town #2, Michigan;
Medium City, Michigan;
Big City, Illinois.
Then I sliced it a different way and got:
A 100-year-old house with squirrels in the walls and secret rooms in the attic;
A modern ranch house with drapes that matched the wallpaper;
As one of 5 freshmen in a dorm room built for 4;
A Chicago six-flat overlooking a forest preserve.
(slurp) Much juicier!
