The State of Using Your Head

"He lives in Washington state."

Any of these jump out as kind of a little odd/awkward to you?

The state of Delaware.
The state of Nebraska.
The state of New Mexico.
The state of California.
Washington state.

If not, how 'bout at least one of these?

California state.
Nebraska state.
Delaware state.
New Mexico state.
The state of Washington.

So thrown for a loop based on the fact that the state shares its name with our nation's capitol, people suddenly forget how to form a sentence. Don't let it happen to you.
