Thought this would be an interesting topic. I always get a laugh out of some of the unusual saying people have in differents parts of the country(aspecially the south) and although we here in the midwest don't have any unusual quirks, we have some. My number one would be you know you are in Michigan when people say they are going up North. I didn't really think about this till lately but everyone says it! Where are you going this weekend? I am going up North. I am from up North and etc. No one says where- just up North. This could mean anywhere from north of Grand Rapids to the U.P. You know you are in Michigan when you can hold up your palm and point to where you live. You know your are in Michigan when you are either a troll or a yooper! You kinow you are in Michigan when the local paper has a lengthly article on what is the best type of snow shovel. I could say more but I would love to hear yours now. Oh ya and by the way I was born up North ha ha.
