Thing We Love: Overalls

After coming across the great photos from yesterday's post, I've become slightly sentimental about growing up in the Midwest. In my warped mind, instead of thinking about riding my bike through the streets of Mission Hills and playing in the yards of the huge mansions, where all of Kansas City's elite live, I like thinking about class trips to Dustin Dolginow's family farm for hikes down to the stream and playing on huge haystacks. I like daydreaming about a little Hollister perched on a bar stool eating livers and gizzards at Duke's, my Aunt's bar in Benedict, Nebraska, a town with a population of 278 people. I like to think this is how we spent our childhood -- in overalls and playing in the water.
