States of confusion

So it turns out Idaho and Iowa are actually different states.

A North Idaho friend, Lauren Hopkins, was back East visiting friends.

One of them asked: “So what's there to do in Des Moines?”

She held up a silver necklace featuring a little piece in the shape of Idaho. “Do you recognize this state?” she asked.

Maybe she should have sung a tune from this famous set-in-Idaho show.
