I was born and raised (reared) in Kentucky, but have lived more years in other places than I did in Kentucky. So, although I am not a Texan by birth, there is something about Texas that truly appeals to this wanderer's heart and soul. Maybe it is because it is BIG and I feel less "crowded" there than anywhere else on earth. At any rate, wanted to share a bit of Texas humor with you.
You know you are a Texan when....
...you only know five spices: salt, pepper, Ranch dressing, BBQ sauce, and ketchup.
...the mosquitoes have landing lights.
...you´ve taken your kids trick-or-treating when it was 90 degrees outside.
...the local paper covers national and international headlines on two pages, but requires six pages for local sports.
...you can (and do) write a check at Dairy Queen for two Hunger-Busters and fries.
...the most effective mosquito repellent is a shotgun.
...you think the start of Deer Season is a national holiday.
...you know which leaves make good toilet paper.
...the major county fund-raiser isn´t bingo - it´s sausage making.
...you find 70 degrees Fahrenheit a little chilly.
...you attend a formal event in your best clothes, your finest jewelry, and your Cowboy Boots.
...you know four seasons - Almost Summer, Summer, Still Summer, and Deer Season.
...you actually understood this post and got a good laugh out of it.
