Wednesday Words: Thank You

Dear Michigan,

Thank you for being shaped like a mitten so that we always have a map of the state with us.  For being surrounded by awesome huge Great Lakes that are like oceans without the salt and sharks.  For being so darn pretty and having four different seasons.  (Even though it’s sometimes so cold here that it literally hurts.)

Thank you for the monks you house in the UP who make amazing muffins and who one day might possibly make bagels for Norris.  Thank you for having the panic inducing scary-ass Mackinac Bridge… without it we’d have to take a ferry from the Lower Peninsula to the Upper Peninsula and it would take way longer to get to lunch at Clyde’s. 

Thank you for the Detroit Tigers, Detroit Lions, Detroit Pistons, and the Michigan State University Spartans. And for putting GVSU only an hour and a half drive from me since having my baby brother further away would be torture! 

Thank you for funky city names like Sagautuk, Okemos, and Kalamazoo that help us identify outsiders when they pronounce things wrong.  Thanks being so close to those awesome Canadians and for letting us use most of the Canadian coins here without trouble. 

Thank you for Faygo, New York Seltzer, and Vernors. Thank you for using the word pop instead of soda.

Thank you for Kid Rock, Eminem, Unckle Kracker, Fun., JK Simmons, Magic Johnson, Taylor Lautner, Derek Jeter, Michael Raymond, Jenny Trout, Bronwyn Green, Lara Zielin, Jessica Jarman, Kellogg, Motown, and yeah… Even Madonna. We still claim her even though she doesn’t claim us. 

Thank you for being my home!
