Song prompt Wed!
"Effington could be a wonderful f'ing place." Ben Folds, Effington.
Despite the title and lyrics, Mr. Folds has confirmed that this song is actually about Effingham, IL. He misread a sign I guess.
So in honor of this song I will now tell you 5 things I know about Effingham without using wikipedia.
1. The former business manager of Effingham once called my boss to compliment me on being such a good client contact. So, based on that I like Effingham.
2. There is no easy way to drive to Effingham from where I live. That is perhaps because no one wants to vacation in Effingham.
3. I consider Effingham to be in southern Illinois even though it is in the middle of the state. Really, I consider anything south of Joliet to be in southern Illinois.
4. Effingham could be a wonderful effing place. (See above.)
5. Um. I guess I only know 4 things.
I know way more about Normal, IL.
