~You can properly pronounce Corsicana, Palestine, Decatur, Wichita Falls, San Antonio, Mexia, Waco, 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.

~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.

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

~You have known someone who has had one belt buckle bigger than your fist.

~You aren’t surprised to find movie rental, 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 heard this conversation:

“You wanna coke?”
“Yeah.”
“What kind?”
“Dr. Pepper.”

No worries Texasokchick. There are treatments for that. Not every Texan that is proud of it needs to be locked up. Some electroshock therapy will do, or some heavy medication plus intensive therapy.
