I’ve lived just outside of Kansas City all my life, or what we call the KC Metro Area. While I’ll admit, I was not fond of this city in my younger days, now I think of it as home. While I live on the Kansas side, I work in Kansas City Missouri and have always identified myself as a Kansas Citian. I thought it might be fun to write a little bit about Kansas City for that reason.
It’s a pretty cool place to live. Being smack dab in the middle of the country means we have tons of trains, truckers passing through, and travelers as well. Oh. And the cost of living here, from what I can tell, is pretty awesome compared to a lot of the rest of the country.
We sit silently in our living room. He watches the mute television screen and I watch him. The planes and ridges of his face are more familiar to me than my own. I understand that he wishes even more than I do that he still loved me. — Jo Ann Beard, The Boys of My Youth
