Spokane neighborhoods/station wagons

Five neighborhoods whose names could have doubled as old station wagon models.

5. Balboa. 4. Manito. 3. Comstock. 2. Grandview. 1. Minnehaha.

…hearing your friends say…

A) “So, are you two planning on starting a family? A LARGE family?” B) “You're a regular James Dean there, aren't you, Griffith?” C) “Ahem. Got enough leg room there, kids?” D) “Hey, it's 10 o'clock. Do you know where your parents are?”  E) “OK, Ward and June. Just remember what Ann Landers says about station wagons.” F) “Don't let that car fool you, Cindy. Johnson there is a wild man.” G) “The thing I like about you, Peterson, is that you know you aren't cool and you don't try to fight it.” H) Other.
