Do You Ever Wonder Why?
In this election year, there is no shortage of craziness to wonder about. It just keeps flying at us from all directions, assailing our senses and rational thought. Something as simple as a cup of coffee at a local diner should not torment the mind.
Yet, as I look down at the table I wonder...
Why...please tell me why...here in Tillamook, Oregon,
...a town where dairy cows outnumber humans many times over
...a town that is home to the seventh largest creamery association in the entire country
...a town where, on the street outside the diner, milk trucks go by all day long
...a town where dairy farmers are sitting in the next booth (right now in fact)
...a town that produces the best milk products you will ever taste (e.g. Tillamook Mudslide Ice Cream)
...why, in heaven's name, are there little individual plastic containers of creamer that have been shipped from DALLAS, TEXAS?
