I’ve never been there but a friend of mine married a girl from Deland, Florida. I asked him where it was within Florida and I was told, “It is between the water and the other water.” My mother-in-law will call me to ask what that meant if I don’t explain. Florida is a peninsula and pretty much and place in Florida is between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. Deland is in Florida and so it is between the water and the other water. One might even say “The land” is between the water and the other water. Of course that is what makes this almost funny because “De land” is a funny way of saying “The Land.”
This is why I don’t tell my MIL many jokes. Explaining it takes all the humor out.
