Name That State

Jonah was making a map. It had a long, winding road, and all along the road were various places. It started at our house, and then went to Oma and Opa's house and then Grandma and Grandpa's house. It had dots representing all the states of which he knew the names: Michigan, Indiana, Minnesota, New York, and Oregon. But it needed more, so he asked me to supply some state names.

"Um... Washington."

"Okay... Washington." Dot.


"Oh! That's where the space shuttle takes off! Floooridaaa..." Dot.


"Georgia..." Dot.


Blink. Stare. "No, you talk."

My turn to blink. "Utah."

"Mom, you talk!"

"I am! I said 'Utah.'"

"I want YOU to talk! I need more names!"

Sigh. "Jonah. There is a state. Named. UTAH."



"Utah." Dot.
