My encounters with Arkansas have been brief.
I drove through Arkansas with my comedy group Dirty Water when we were on our way to Texas for the Austin Improv Festival. As we cruised through, we sang the "Arkansas ARKANSAS Arkansas ARKANSAS" call-and-response part of the song Arkansas by Souf Land over and over again.
A couple of years later, Mrs. Tires and I drove through Arkansas on a trip that brought us to Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia and Tennessee. Our journey was as quick and uneventful as the first time around, but at least this time we got a photograph, the one featured at the beginning of this post.
And that's my story about Arkansas.
