So Sarge and I were driving around Fairfax yesterday after taking Piko de Gallo to the 18th Century Farm Market at the Claude Moore Colonial Farm (a strange but fun experience in and of itself)(Which is next to the George Bush Center for Intelligence!!! We laughed...and laughed....and then I had to stop, because of my own stupid). Sarge is applying for a job in NoVa, up near Dulles Airport, so we are toying with the idea of becomming first time home buyers. Sarge says he does not want to be 40 and never owned his own home. Me I'm content to live in whatever housing the military gives us. It's a whole comfort zone thing I guess.
Anyway, on to the stoopid.
I'm looking at the map and I ask in all seriousness.
"So, West Virginia. That's it's own state right?"
"YES!" Sarge replies. "Way to go college girl!"
In my defense, the map we have has a little map that says WESTERN Virginia.
Edited to add: Actually that justification makes me look even stupider as really, I should just know that West Virginia is a state.
