If You’ve Done 15 Out Of These 20 Things You’re A TRUE Iowan
How Iowan are you? Here's the thing, even if you were born and bred here in the Hawkeye state, you might not be Iowan enough. In my short time here I've gathered a list of what can be considered the most "Iowan" things to do here. With that said it's safe to say that if you've done 15/20 of the things on this list, you're a true Iowan.
1). Got stuck behind a tractor on your way to work.
2). Worn a winter coat one day, and shorts the next.
3). Notifying your friends when it's "bags" season.
4). Gone to Adventureland.
5). You've met a presidential candidate.
