I respond with a resounding “Yes!”

This is my only now.

I would say a good answer would simply to respond with a resounding “Yes!”

Fireflies in California? I’ve lived in Santa Clara County, Contra Costa County, and Mendocino County for a total of almost 2 decades, now, and I’ve never seen any fireflies or lightning buts at all. Never. Not ever. Not even once.

I don’t drink soda, or pop, or carbonated beverages of any sort. Well, once a decade or so when I find one that’s not made with any sort of corn syrup. Those are scarcer than hen’s teeth.

We not only have rolo-poly pill bugs, we also have a similar but not entirely like critter called a wood louse. Kind of like the pill bug, but has slightly flanged edges. I called ‘em BB Bugs in Arkansas. When I was growing up there, little kids who don’t know any better, or who are just mean, used them in their BB guns as ammunition.

I don’t eat subs, grinders, or hoagies.

My bread has crusts. My shoes have heels. I’ve also, regrettably, dated a few heels.

I don’t care for water or drinking fountains...too unsanitary for my tastes.

But, still and all, California is fer sure, totally, awesome and gnarly, dude! The living cost is totally harsh, however.

This is my only now.

Oddly enough, I have heard that she threw the offending dictionary down the well and fled from the scene of her crime.
