Your from Texas if...

I hope this works this time, if it doesn't I'll do it again



You're from Texas if...........
*You can properly pronounce Corsicana, Palestine, Decatur, Wichita Falls, San Antonio, MEXIA, Waco, and Amarillo.

*You think that people who complain about the wind in their states are sissies.

*A tornado warning siren is your signal to go out in the yard and look for a funnel.

*You've ever had to switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.

*You know that the true value of a parking space is not determined by the distance to the door, but by the availability of shade.

*Stores don't have bags, they have sacks.

*You think everyone from a bigger city has an accent.

*You measure distance in minutes.

*Little Smokies are something you serve only for special occasions.

*You go to the lake because you think it is like going to the ocean.

*You listen to the weather forecast before picking out an outfit.

*You know cowpies are not made of beef.

*Someone you know has used a football schedule to plan their wedding date.

*You have known someone who has had one belt buckle bigger than your fist.

*You aren't surprised to find movie rental, ammunition, and bait all in the same store.

*A Mercedes Benz is not a status symbol. A Ford F350 4x4 is.

*You know everything goes better with Ranch.

*You actually get these jokes and are "fixin' " to send them to your friends.

(and my ultimate favorite...)

*Finally, you are 100% Texan if you have ever heard this

conversation:

"You wanna coke?"

"Yeah."

"What kind?"

"Dr. Pepper."

Yeah, heard most of those, that's why I had to move home to Michigan - I just didn't fit in!

If you are from Tennessee, like HH is, you understand most of these. He used to drink a lot of grape "Cokes".

Hubby drinks a lot of Mellow Yellow "Cokes", I have to plan TC's birthday parities around a football schedule, I measure distance in minutes, I'm waiting on a special occasion to use the 2 packs of Little Smokies that are in my freezer right now, & most of the others ring true as well. And I've never even been to Texas!

reminds me of some lines from a favorite song (That's Right You're Not From Texas) by Lyle Lovett:

...and the women all are beautiful
and the men will buy your beer for free
