Am I an Okie? (Part 2)

A continuation of this post.
  • You know the true value of a parking space is not determined by the distance to the door, but by the availability of shade.

  • Grocery stores don't have bags and carts, they have sacks and buggies.

  • You see people wear bib overalls to funerals.

  • You think everyone from a bigger city has an accent.

  • You measure distance in minutes ("I'm about 5 minutes away.")

  • You refer to the capital of Oklahoma as "The City."

  • It doesn't bother you to use an airport named for a man who died in an airplance crash.

  • Little smokies are something you serve only for special occasions.

  • You listen to the weather forecast before choosing an outfit.

  • Someone you know has used a college football schedule to plan their wedding date.

  • Easy now, we're about half way done with these. More later.
