As a Kansan, you develop a tolerance for certain things.
"What the hell is a Jayhawk, exactly?"... widespread but still disturbing absence of appreciation for the Most Beautiful License Plate award we snagged in 1981.... and Wizard of Oz references. It's okay. I get it. Really, I do. Let's face it, without tornadoes and the wicked witch of the west, we're not known for much.

I can't expect you all to know that there's no movie I despise more than the Wizard of Oz. There's no way you could possibly have known that when I was little, I had to watch it to get un-grounded. That when I really crossed the line, I had to get my friends to sit through it with me. That I imagine the seventh circle of hell looks a lot like a yellow brick road winding down to Emerald City.

My first few weeks of law school, as we were all making introductions and getting devastatingly intoxicated in front of people who will someday be our colleagues at bar, I got a lot of "we're not in Kansas anymore" and "where's Toto?" and "shouldn't you be wearing red shoes?" Eventually, though, the novelty of my exotic heritage wore off (yes, in the Midwest, out-of-state qualifies you as exotic) or at least people got sick of the Dorothy jokes. I let my guard down. I thought we'd all stopped beating the dead horse of a different color.

So imagine my shock at work today when, having found a cassette tape (no it's not 1982) I've been looking for for the past week, our investigator yelled down the hall "Hey Dorothy! Found it!"

... it's baaa-aaack.
(Here's what I wore out last night to drown my sorrows in Oreo martinis.)
