I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

When my baby, when my baby smiles at me I go to Reno

Since I was in Reno for a funeral, I don't want to be flippant but that was my earworm for the two nights that I was there.

Not long before my mother died, I was sitting with her in the hospital and we were looking out the window at the desert sprawl. My mom sighed and said, "Kate, did you ever think we'd end up in Reno?" I hadn't, and neither had she, but there we were.

This was the first time I had ever stayed downtown, and I spent a morning walking around before it got too hot (which was at approximately 9 am.) I did get to see the small park along the Truckee River, which was pretty and pleasant, but otherwise it was all so, so Reno.
