    Stole this from another forum, but I thought everybody here might like to read it! ;)

    You might be a Floridian if...

    "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.

    Socks are only for bowling.

    Orange juice from concentrate makes you vomit.

    Tap water makes you vomit.

    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 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.

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

    All the local festivals are named after a fruit.

    A mountain is any hill 100 feet above sea level.

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

    It's not "pop." It's "soda" or "coke."

    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.

    You've driven through Yeehaw Junction.

    Bumper stickers on the pickup in front of you include various fish, the 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 couldn't swim.

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

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

    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.

    You know why flamingos are pink.

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

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

    You also know thats its not smart to play with, or try to save the jellyfish that wash up on shore. In fact, trying to "save" them is frowned upon.

    I agree with the entire list with one exception (and no offense intended), but flip-flops (anywhere but the beach) are for skanks, even by Florida's low fashion standards.
