Quick quiz: Who is the governor of Kansas?
If you don't know, don't fret. Kansans don't know who Mark Parkinson is either, as the governor explained in a delightful blog post this week:
Last week, we decided to order pizza to Cedar Crest. I called the pizza place and you know the drill. They ask your name, address, phone number and then your order. I gave them my name and then for address, I decided to give them the actual street address and not say "Governor's Mansion." I just thought that sounded too pretentious.
They look up the address in their computer and for some reason it doesn't show up. And then I tell them that it's Cedar Crest, where the Governor lives. The person paused and then asked if it was a prank. And I told them no, it really was where the Governor lives and we just wanted pizza. Then, he asked if I worked for the Governor and how could I prove that this wasn't a prank.
That's when I told him that I was the Governor! I told him not to worry about it, lots of people didn't know the Kansas Governor by name, and we got our pizza.
