When she was in Spain, she felt that every place she visited, Hemingway had been there first. In honor of unwittingly visiting his birth place (and the "Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park"), we climbed the steps of this grand museum...and headed straight for the gift shop. Kim wanted a souvenir.
The woman running the shop told us a funny story about a customer asking if they carried "3XL" size t-shirts. When she found one in stock and handed over the giant shirt to her, she commented that she must have a very big man in her life. "Oh no, she said, it's going to be a nightshirt for me. I've always wanted to sleep with Hemingway."
So here we were in Oak Park, Illinois, three friends laughing and paling around like we were in high school all over again. Priceless.
