Took the "scenic route" between Wichita, Kansas and La Junta, Colorado. Problem is, there IS NO SCENERY in Western Kansas or Eastern Colorado. What a boring drive. Non-interstate "scenic route" is at times, a terrible, terrible misnomer.
On the plus side, I giggle like a retard every time I say the word "La Junta." While it means "The Junction" in English, and the locals here pronounce it like dog hunting, La hunta before I knew any better I was saying it with a long-u sound, like the author Dean Koontz - La hoonta. And that makes me giggle.
Use it in a sentence: "I kicked her square in the La Hoonta."
