Only in Florida...

Okay, so I read this on my friend's myspace blog and thought it was hilarious (because it is SOOOO true!!!)
Only in Florida -
...Socks are only for bowling.

...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.

...Anything under 70 is chilly.

...You pass on the right and honk at the elderly, but pull over for a funeral.

...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 anything under a Category 3, just isn't worth waking up for.

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

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

...'Down South' means Key West

...You think New York drivers licenses should only be valid in New York

...Flip-flops are everyday wear. (I say flips...u say flops!!)

...Shoes are for business meetings and church, but you HAVE worn flip flops to church before. (shamelessly I admit I do all the time! LOL)

...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~~oooohhh...aaaahhh!!!

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

...You think everyone from a bigger city has a northern accent.

...You know the four seasons really are: hurricane season, love bug season, tourist season and summer

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

...Anything under 95 is just warm.

...You've hosted a hurricane party.

...You understand the futility of exterminating cockroaches.

...You can pronounce Okeechobee, Kissimmee , Ichnatucknee, Wewahitchka, and Withlacoochee

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

...You were 25 when you first met someone who couldn't swim.

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

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Us northerners are laughing uproariously about this right now. Not. I'm indulging in some serious jealousy right now as I sit huddled in my cold house with nothing but rain/snow/gray, etc. outside my window!

Oh to be where you are. We had almost 70 degree weather yesterday and now we're expecting snow and sleet tonight. Ugh.

My husband won a grant and we'll be in Florida for the month of June. Can't Wait!!

I look forward to hearing about your financial/shopping goals. I've found that just setting small ones each month inspires me more and makes a difference.

I'm not yet the CVS expert, but I hope to be:) I haven't ventured into Walgreens yet- too much for my brain.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I grew up in FL so these all make complete sense to me. My sister still lives in FL and she wraps herself in a sweatshirt, sock and a blanket when it dips below 70 degrees. I now live in IN and we put on shorts and flip flops when the temp finally hits 60
