    You are a Texan If:

    1. You can properly pronounce Corsicana,
    Palestine , Decatur, Wichita Falls, Houston, San
    Antonio, Burnet, Boerne, Nacogdoches,
    Mexia, Waco, Amarillo, and Waxahachie.

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

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

    4. 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.

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

    6. You see people wear bib overalls at funerals.

    7. You measure distance in minutes.

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

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

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

    11. You know cow-pies are not made of beef.

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

    13. You have known someone who has had a
    belt buckle bigger than your fist.

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

    15. Your "place at the lake" has wheels under it.

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

    17. You know everything goes better with Ranch dressin'.

    18. You learned how to shoot a gun before you learned how to multiply.

    19. You actually understand this and you are
    "fixin' to" send it to your friends.

    20. Finally, you are 100% Texan if you have
    ever heard this conversation:
    " You wanna coke?"
    "What kind?"
    "Dr. Pepper."

    Have a Great Day!

    I love it! Some are a bit 'silly' in my personal version of texas, but I love the shaded parking space one!

    I'd add to to the place-name list: Palacios

    I'd change Ranch dressing to Salsa. (my family& friends harass our 'Northern' relatives that put ranch on their tortillas!!)

    21. You know someone who drove the 2hrs to stock up on Real Dr. Pepper made with Imperial sugar instead of syrup.

    22. You automatically do the "Fire-Ant 2-step" when standing on grass.
  4. LOL! Those are all so true! Thanks for posting that! [​IMG]

    yeah, can you pronounce Refugio? It sounds like reverio. We say "ain't" a lot too. Nothing beats TEXAS!

    I have to add to that one about going to the lake - my sister lived in Texas for a bit and I remember going to a lake with her when I visited. That water had to be 80 degrees or more - it was like bathwater! Yuck!

    Yep! Some things, like the fire ants & quickly changing weather aren't unique to texas, but they sure are a part of the total package.

    Blisschick: mustn't forget to pronounce that 'r' in Kuykendal ! (went to Rice)
