The 12,000-Pound Potato

Yesterday, right before bed, I read a news story about The Great Big Idaho Potato. It was here in my own hometown and nobody had told me. I’d never heard of it before, but it’s a 12,000-lbs. replica potato, it’s already travelled 18,000 miles cross-country, and it was parked less than five miles from my house.

It was scheduled to leave for Syracuse the following morning. I went upstairs, walked into the bedroom, and said to my wife:

“There’s a giant potato parked in Troy. I’m going to drive down and see it.”

“Go out in the hall and walk back in,” she said.

I went out in the hall and walked back in.

“What did you say?” she asked.

“There’s a giant potato parked in Troy. I’m going to drive down and see it.”

“Why am I even surprised?”

“I know! I won’t be long.”

“Be safe.”
