Delaware. I'm in Delaware.

At dinner tonight, Abby excitedly described a game that she and her friend at school had made up. This friend had brought in a collection of quarters. They would lay the quarters out, heads up, and turn them over. Whatever state was on the back, that's what state you would pretend to be in, until your next turn. According to Abby:

"Sometimes, though, you'd turn over a quarter and nothing would be there," from which I gleaned that some quarters were regular old "eagle back" quarters.

"So we made the game that then you'd be in nowheresland, or lalaland. Or Delaware."
