Archive for the ‘The South’ Category

I just had to share this….my sister sent it to me.  I am a native Georgia Peach myself but I think some of  this might apply to a few other states around the south too…….at least most of it.  AND I can say that I associate with a lot of these……for better or for worse ! I think it’s pretty funny! Enjoy.

You’re from
Georgia if

 1.  You can properly pronounce Chickamauga, DeKalb, Dahlonega, Smyrna, Buena Vista, Valdosta, Okefenokee, and LaFayette.  P.S.
Atlanta = ADD-LANNA, not AT-LANT-A.

 2.  You think people who complain about the heat in their states are sissies.

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

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 or shopping carts, they have sacks and buggies.

6.  You’ve seen people wear bib overalls at weddings and funerals.

 7.  You think everyone from a Yankee state has an accent.

 8.  You measure distance in minutes.

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.

13.  You know someone who has a belt buckle bigger than your fist.

 14.  Almost everyone you know is either Baptist or Methodist.

15.  A Mercedes Benz isn’t a status symbol.  A Chevy Silverado Crew Cab with extended bed is.

16.  You know everything goes better with Ranch dressing.

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

18.  Ironically, you only crave Chick-Fil-A and alcohol on Sundays . . when neither is sold.

21.  Fried chicken is a major part of your diet

22.  Krispy Kreme doughnuts are the only kind of doughnuts you eat.

23..  You call it a cold Christmas if you don’t break out in a sweat in your new sweater.

 24.  When a single snowflake falls, the entire state shuts down, even if it doesn’t stick.  The radio and TV news will make snowstorm reports every ten minutes and the grocery store will be completely sold out of bread, milk, bottled water, toilet paper, and adult drinks.

 25.  People actually grow, eat, and like okra!

 26.  You know the difference between a hillbilly, a redneck, and a Southerner.

35.  You know the whole peach state thing only applies to those below the fall line.

36.  You have a flip-flop tan year-round

37.  You use “The Big  Chicken” as a basis for all directions.

38.  You get dressed extra nice TWICE a week . . . once on Sunday morning for church, and once on Friday night for the football game.  

And finally . . .  39.  You are 100% Georgian if you have ever had this conversation:  “You wanna coke?”  “Yeah.”  “What kind?”  “Dr. Pepper.”
