A woman ordered a new stove from a retailer. However, the stove was delivered while the woman was at work one day.
When the woman got home, she noticed that the new stove had been installed and her old stove was missing. She frantically called the retailer and asked, "Where is my old stove?"
The retailer replied that she just had a new one delivered to her. The woman asked again "Where is my old stove?"
The retailer replied. "Your new stove has all the latest features" and he proceeded to list them all.
The woman interrupted "Where is my old stove?"
The retailer concerned and bewildered asked the woman why she wanted to know where her old stove was.
The woman replied in anguish " My dinner is in the oven!"

Mundane Journeys through an Amazing World
begins with Interstate 80. Not the most engaging topic, I know, but when you think about it, I-80 runs all the way across the North American continent linking San Francisco and New York. It's not just a ribbon of asphalt, it's a portal to far away, almost magical places.
My visits to major cities like Tokyo, London and Washington DC have been business affairs. I haven't rode a lot of roller coasters or ridden in open air buses, but I have visited with senators, bought yams from the back of a truck and barely escaped complete embarrassment when I was introduced to Matt Wiener in Vegas.
As I wrote the book I realized that over the years exotic, distant places have become more like the mundane places I've called home. But, as it turns out, there really aren't any mundane places, only mundane ways of looking at things.
