You Know You Live in Texas…

By Kay on Tue, Aug 19, 2008


This is not my list, but when my friend, Karen, sent this to me, I laughed so hard that I just knew I couldn’t keep it to myself.  Tell me which one had you rolling in the comments section below! :) 

You know you are in TEXAS in AUGUST when:

1. The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground.

2. The trees are whistling for the dogs.

3. The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.

4. Hot water now comes out of both taps.

5. You can make sun tea instantly.

6. You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.

7. The temperature drops below 95 and you feel a little chilly.

8. You discover that in August it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car.

9. You discover that you can get sunburned through your car window.

10. You actually burn your hand opening the car door.

11. You break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 a.m.

12. Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, ‘What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death.

13. You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.

14. The potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and add butter, salt and pepper.

15. Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.

16. The cows are giving evaporated milk.

    The asphalt and evaporated milk are my favorites!!! People in northern states just don’t get Texas heat!!

    I LOVED the ‘asphalt has a liquid state’, too! My other fave was about parking places being determined by shade. SO true! How many times have we been willing to walk a LOT further, just for the sake of parking in the shade!! 🙂 Texas heat is just a special kind of heat, isn’t it?? 🙂

    I loved the parking spot close to the shade…I find myself doing that more and more lately! I love Texas!

Holy cow!! Great use of visuals to help explain the proposed budget cuts and their actual impact on the overall budget.

You’ll never fold tshirts the same way again!

If you ever wanted to hear someone put a mommy’s day into a song, try this one! (I guarantee you’ll laugh your butt off.)

A little on the political side, but interesting nonetheless…
