Two quick things about
my beloved homeland of Minnesota:


1) We play cribbage.

At least my family does.

It's how my folks taught us math skills.

At least up to what makes 31.



2) We wear puffy coats.

At least my friend Grace and I do.

It's how we stay warm.

At least until we've walked along the Mississippi for a mile or two and duck into a local non-chain ice cream place for Guinness and Green Tea ice cream (I kid you not.)

You know what I like about you, Zac? Your parallelisms. Always so elegant!

Michael just taught me how to play cribbage this past year -- that is the one with the cards and the pegs, right? -- but I shall never wear a puffy coat.

I am not very Minnesotan, it seems.

sir, so good to hear of your midwestern travels. I was reminded of how your uncle (?) was hired to write descriptions of peoples cribbage boards for their sales on ebay.

For Christmas this year I recieved a cribbage board in the shape of Wisconsin from my girlfriend(an official hall of fame gift). We will have to play sometime.
