    OH I hope this e-mail all fits

    THIS IS FLORIDA AND ONLY FLORIDIANS 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. <span class="ev_code_RED">Wait there's other tea?</span>

    An alligator once walked through your neighborhood. <span class="ev_code_RED">no, but I know a girl that was chased by one and a friend in college had to get one off his parents property</span>

    You smirk when a game show's "Grand Prize" is a trip or cruise to
    Florida. <span class="ev_code_RED">YUP </span>
    BR>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.<span class="ev_code_RED">Nope we had the Mullet Festivel (the fish not the hair cut)</span>

    A mountain is any hill 100 feet above sea level.

    You think everyone from a bigger city has a northern 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 an
    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. <span class="ev_code_RED">nope never had a pool</span>

    You were 12 when you first met someone who couldn't swim.

    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. <span class="ev_code_RED">maybe the AC</span>

    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 <span class="ev_code_RED">no I know I just go to the other side of the parking lot</span>

    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 differenc between fire ant bites and mosquito bites

    You're younger than thirty but some of your friends are over 65 <span class="ev_code_RED">I live in TN and that's still true!</span>

    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 <span class="ev_code_RED">Heck my home had a blue roof, my parents had part of a blue roof and the Local Chorus's Christmas Play the Santa had a blue roof </span>

    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. <span class="ev_code_RED">YUP!</span>

    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. <span class="ev_code_RED">Yes and had MRE's from Ivan until I moved</span>

    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 weretwelve before you ever saw snow or you still haven't. <span class="ev_code_RED">actual saw snow when I was 7 but didn't see it stick to the ground until this year in TN</span>
