Dear Rhode Island

You are very nice. I have relatives that live near your border, and I love the TF Green airport. You have great beaches, cheaper gas, and one imagines you are the home of Newport Creamery, which has great ice cream and frappes. But I am not like you. No matter what some quiz says.
Nor am I Virginia, lovely though it may be. Or Georgia, or Maine, or really I should just give up because I'm sure they aren't counting DC as a state and I know it's not a state.
Oh - wait I did it! I turned myself into DC! And yes it totally does count, even if I figured out how to make myself six or ten states first. (Because, really, couldn't one argue, that my insistence the results do not fit me, makes me more DC. I was set up to believe I was other states, really, DC is who I am.)

You're the District of Columbia!

While you really like to believe you're in control of everything around
you, there is more than meets the eye. In spite of your attendance in several parades
and your almost unending ability to vote, you actually are getting taxed without being
represented! In spite of this shameful double-standard, you are still unendingly loyal
to your country and your flag. You love monuments, memorials, and museums. If you were
a type of berry, you would be a marionberry.
