I was born in Michigan.
And like The President, I need to prove that I was born in Michigan and not Kenya.
I sent a request to the Michigan Department of Vital Records (I’m sure they have plenty of Non-Vital Records too.) But because they neglected to ask on the form, I didn’t send any official identification to prove that I was in fact who I think I might be.
The Michigan Department of Vital Records sent me a nice letter asking if I please could fax (!) a photocopy of something official… which I did.
I called today to see that I was in the system, and while I was on hold, the dulcet tones of Tim Allen invited me to play in the snow of Pure Michigan.
Tim Allen was born in Michigan.
The Department of Vital Records “music on hold” was this commercial…
There is plenty of snow in Michigan. Some people are still posting photos of the ice and snow beauty of Ultra Northern Michigan.
Me? I wouldn’t go near the snow.
Unless Tim Allen paid me.
