Illionis

Folks at the conference I’m attending seem to have no idea that the Midwest exists. They have already provided me with 3 different appellations for my state of Illinois.

The program refers to it as “Illionis.” The certificate I get for attending the conference calls it “Ilinnois.” But the prize for the most convoluted spelling goes to the badge I have to wear on my chest. It claims that I’m from “Illionnois.”

  1. Are you at MMLA? They ran out of conference programs this morning. You’d think they would print enough for the participants at least! I did get one but only because I got down to the registration area very early this morning.
