Who Dares.......... question the great and powerful Princess Crabby! The Goddess of the Navy Blogging Strike Group! The Empress of La Moata, she who has no equal, Princesa Malhumorada, Maggie!

Fishmugger, that's who.

You know Boston does not exist. It was a ploy by Washington during the Revolution to splash a victory in all the colonial papers.
Now wait...I could explain. Have you ever met anyone from Boston? Come on...Boston. Not really. Quincy, East Quincy, Brooklyn, Braintree, Cambridge, Woburn, Newton. Never Boston. I rest my case. Three square blocks does not a city make. Then again, BostonMaggie does have a certain flair. BraintreeMaggie wouldn't work.

I beg your pardon! Are you insinuating that I would exaggerate for effect?

When my parents brought their first born child, a beautiful daughter (it's true, ask my mother's friends. They always said "She is so beautiful, how can she be so horrid?)from the hospital it was to 31 #1/2 Mount Vernon Street on what is referred to as "the wrong hill" halfway between the USS Constitution and the Bunker Hill Monument. It was called the wrong hill because the Battle of Bunker Hill and it's monument are actually on Breed's Hill.

At age 5 and 1/2 we moved to the "right hill". My parents looked at home on Monument Square but my mother's father told them that with those high ceilings it would be too hard to heat. They settled on a wooden attached house in St. Francis de Sales parish. We were actually discussing this topic Friday night at Deb's party because 31 #1/2 Mt. Vernon is currently for sale......for $1,645,000. Breathtaking! My parents paid $50 per month for rent on the first floor when I was a baby.

Is that "Boston" enough for you? And, yes, I *do* know people from Boston.

I had lunch in that very neighborhood this weekend! After visiting Old Ironsides and then Chris took all the steps up to the top of the Bunker Hill monument (I waited outside and timed him).

Also, the commenter said "Brooklyn", not "Brookline", so they clearly don't know the Boston area too well anyways.
