Are You 100 Percent?

You are 100% Texan if...

You are 100% Texan if... 
 
1. It doesn't bother you to use an airport named for a man who died in an airplane crash. 
 
2. You use the phrase "fixin' to" almost daily. 
 
3. Someone you know has used a football schedule to  plan their wedding date. 

4. You've ever been excused from school because "the cows got out." 

5. You can properly pronounce the town Mexia and Mesquite. 

6. You can remember the name of the last state legislator to introduce a bill involving castration, and he didn't mean farm animals. 

7. You know exactly what calf fries are, and eat them anyway. 

8. You can recall hot summers by the year they happened easier than you can remember your mother's birthday. 

9. You think that people who complain about the hurricanes in their states are sissies. 

10. 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. 

11. You have owned at least one belt buckle bigger than your fist. 

12. A bad traffic jam involves two cars staring each other down at a four-way stop, each determined to be the most polite and let the other one go first. 

13. When you hear a tornado siren, you go out and look for a funnel. 

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

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

16. A Jaguar is not a status symbol. A Ford F350 4x4 is. 

17 . You know that everything goes better with Ranch or Tabasco. 

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

19. You know that "y'all" is singular and "all y'all" is plural. 

20 . You are 100% Texan if you have ever had this conversation: "You wanna Coke?" "Yeah." "What kind?" "Dr. Pepper."

This is no joke.  This is the absolute truth.  I know for sure Bubba could put one shell right in the hole he had just made with another before he knew his multiplication.  I do know someone who used a football schedule for wedding planning.  'Bout the only thing wrong is ......what tornado siren??  Maybe that's West Texas.  In East Texas we just wait for the sky to turn that eerie green shade.  -  Barbara

Well, I consider myself 100% Texan, even if I am only a "Naturalized" one.  Hey, I got here as fast as I could.  Hee hee. I don't know the answer to #1 (I probably do...but can't think of it). And I don't have a belt buckle biggern my fist.  Anywho...it's a great list.  One more to add (though I've been saying it since I was a kid in KS). I live in the city limits. I live in a town of 230,000, however when I am fixin to go to the grocery store or mall or post office, whatever, I will say I'm going to town.  LOL As in,"I'm goin to town. Probably stop at Wally Martinez (Walmart). Do all y'all need anything? "  LOLOL
Hugs, Barb

You are 100% Ohioian if you . . .

1. Read something about someone elses state and get jealous.

Oh Oh, but I am a heads up because we in Ohio clearly know that ya'll is singular and all ya'll is plural . . . what good country girl wouldn't know that?!?!

Ohio must be like the North's version of Texas because honestly #4, #9 (Only because we don't ever get hurricanes) #10, #11, #13, #18, #19 and definitaly #20 sound to familiar, and I have never been to Texas. Ha!

Love it!
