It’s A Florida Thing!

I saw this somewhere quite a long time ago and I thought I would share it with everyone. If you are a Floridian, this will give you a chuckle.

  It’s a Florida thing…Socks are for Bowling. You never use an umbrella because the rain will be over in 5 minutes. A good parking space has nothing to do with distance from the store, and everything to do with shade. You can tell the difference between fire ant bites and misquito bites. Anything under 70 degrees is chilly! You’ve driven through Yeehaw Junction. You know that no other store can compare to Publix. You know that anything under a Category 3 just isn’t worth waking up for. You dread Love Bug Season. Your on a first name basis with the Hurricane list. They aren’t Hurricane Charlie or Hurricane Frances. You know them as Andrew, Charley, Frances, Ivan, Jeanne, Wilma, Irene, Cheryl, Rita, Mary, Allison. You know what a snowbird is… and when they leave. You think a six foot alligator is actually pretty average. Down South means, Key West. Flip-Flops are everyday wear. Shoes are for business meetings and Church, BUT…you have worn Flip Flops to Church before. You have a drawer full of bathing suits but only 1 sweatshirt. You get annoyed with the tourist that feed the seagulls.  A mountian is any hill 100 ft above sea level. You know the four seasons are Hurricane season, Lovebug season, Tourist season, and Summer. You’ve hosted a Hurricane Party! You can pronounce Okeechobee, Kissimmee, Withlacoochee, Thonotosassa and Micanopy. You understand why its better to have a friend with a boat than have a boat yourself. Afterall boat stands for bust out another thousand.You were 25 when you first met someone who couldn’t swim. You’ve worn shorts and used the air conditioner on Christmas and New Years. You recognize Miami-Dade as Northern Cuba.
