you’re stuck behind a tractor on the highway and have an excuse for being late
being “Iowa nice” is your way of life
going on vacation means to go to Arnolds Park
you’ve played the yard game, cornhole
your go-to foods are Maid-rite sandwiches and tenderloins
Learned the skill of dodging a deer
Cheer for the Hawkeyes and Cyclones even if you don’t follow sports
You’ve met at least one presidential candidate
You shop at Hy-Vee, have breakfast at Hy-Vee, have worked at Hy-Vee
Your wedding was held in your church basement
Every road trip begins on I-80
Measure distance in time, not miles. Be there in 5.
You may have moved from Iowa, but still think it’s one of the best places to live.
You admire the massive 220-pound bird flying inside the Des Moines Airport.
