Grand Rapids is also my go-to made up town when I need to quickly come up with some hypothetical town. My friend CRuss points out that when I have to come up with a random man's name, I frequently use "Curtis". So, I guess I'm saying that for me, any and all Curtises in Grand Rapids are basically my kind of people and salt of the earth, through and through.
It's like I've known you all my life; brothers from another mother.
