    THIS IS FLORIDA AND ONLY FLORIDANS KNOW THIS...

    "Down South" means Key West

    "Panhandling" means going to Pensacola.

    You think no-one over 70 should be allowed to drive.

    Flip-flops are everyday wear.

    Shoes are for business meetings and church.

    No, wait, flip flops are good for church too, unless
    it's Easter or
    Christmas.

    Sweet tea can be served at any meal.

    An alligator once walked through your neighborhood.

    You smirk when a game show's "Grand Prize" is a trip
    or cruise to Florida.

    You measure distance in minutes.

    You have a drawer full of bathing suits, and one
    sweatshirt.

    You get annoyed at the tourists who feed seagulls.

    All the local festivals are named after a fruit.

    A mountain is any hill 100 feet above sea level.

    You think everyone from a bigger city has a north! ern
    accent.

    You know the four seasons really are: almost summer,
    summer,
    not summer but really hot, and Christmas.

    It's not soda, cola, or pop...its coke, regardless of
    brand or flavor, "What kinda coke you want?"

    Anything under 95 is just warm.

    Anything under 70 is chilly.

    You've hosted a hurricane party.

    You go to a theme park for an afternoon, and know when
    to get on the best rides.

    You pass on the right and honk at the elderly.

    You understand the futility of exterminating
    cockroaches.

    You can pronounce Okeechobee, Kissimmee,
    Withlacoochee, Okahumpka and
    Loxahatchee.

    You understand why it's better to have a friend with a
    boat, than have a boat yourself.

    Bumper stickers on the pickup in front of you include:
    various fish, NRA, and a confederate flag.

    You were 8 before you realized they made houses
    without pools.

    You were 12 when you first met someone who cou! ldn'tswim.

    You get angry when people say "Florida isn't really
    part of the SOUTH"

    You've worn shorts and used the A/C on Christmas.

    You know what the "stingray shuffle" is, and why it's
    important!

    Socks are only for bowling

    Orange juice from concentrate makes you vomit

    Tap water makes you vomit

    You never use an umbrella because you know the rain
    will be over in
    five minutes

    A good parking place has nothing to do with distance
    from the store,
    but everything to do with shade.

    Your winter coat is made of denim

    You can tell the difference between fire ant bites and
    mosquito bites

    You're younger than thirty but some of your friends
    are over 65

    You've driven through Yeehaw Junction.

    You could swim before you could read

    You have to drive north to get to The South

    You know that no other grocery store can compare to
    Publix.

    Every other house had blue! roofs in 2004-2005

    You've gotten out of school early on Halloween to
    trick or treat before it got dark

    You know that anything under a Category 3 just isn't
    worth waking up for.

    You dread lovebug season.

    You are on a first name basis with the Hurricane list.
    They aren't Hurricane Charley, Hurricane Frances...but
    Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne.

    You know what a snowbird is and you hate them.

    You know why flamingos are pink.

    You think a six-foot alligator is actually pretty
    average.

    You were 12 before you ever saw snow or you still
    haven't.

    Repost if you're a Floridian!

    After the hurricane blows your shingles off, you cover the roof with a blue plastic tarp.
