Just call me Mr. Dull.

" No, ma'am there isn't much culture [in Grover's Corners]; but, maybe this is the place to tell you that we've got a lot of pleasures of a kind here: we like the sun comin' up over the mountain in the morning, and we all notice a good deal about the birds. We pay a lot of attention to them. And we watch the change of the seasons; yes everybody knows about them. . ."
