You Know You're a Texan When....

You can properly pronounce Corsicana, Palestine, Decatur, Wichita Falls, Mexia, Waco, Waxahachie and Amarillo.

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

You've ever had to switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.

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.

You think everyone from a bigger city has an accent.

You measure distance in minutes.

You give driving directions using landmarks instead of N-S-E-W

Little Smokies are something you serve only for special occasions.

You listen to the weather forecast *before* picking out an outfit.

You know cowpies are not made of beef.

You know what calf-fries really are and you've eaten some.

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

You have known someone whose belt buckle is bigger than your fist.

You aren't surprised to find movie rentals, beer, ammunition, and bait all
in the same store.

A Mercedes Benz is not a status symbol. A Chevy 3500 4x4 is.

You know everything goes better with Ranch.

You actually get these jokes and are "fixin' " to send them to your friends.

You go to the river/lake because you think it is like going to the ocean.

*Finally, you are 100% Texan if you have ever had or heard this conversation:
"You wanna coke?"
"What kind?"
"Dr. Pepper
