I'm sure some of you will appreciate this more than others.

Things I've learned about North Carolina.....
Possums sleep in the middle of the road with their feet in the air.

There are 5,000 types of snakes and 4,998 live in North Carolina.

There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 live in North Carolina, plus a couple no one's seen before.

Squirrels will eat anything.

Unknown critters love to dig holes under tomato plants.

Raccoons will test your crop of melons and let you know when they are ripe.

If it grows, it sticks; if it crawls; it bites.

A tractor is NOT an all-terrain vehicle. They do get stuck.

Onced and Twiced are words.

It is not a shopping cart, it is a buggy.

Fire ants consider your flesh as a picnic.

People actually grow and eat okra.

Fixinto is one word.

There ain't no such thing as "lunch". There's only dinner and then there's supper.

Tea is appropriate for all meals and you start drinking it when you're 2.

Backards and forwards means I know everything about you.

'Jeet? is actually a phrase meaning "Did you eat?"

You don't have to wear a watch because it doesn't matter what time it is. You work until you're done or it's too dark to see.

More about North Carolinians....

You know you're from North Carolina if:

1. You measure distance in minutes.

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

3. You know what a 'tar heel' is.

4. You see a car running in the parking lot at the store with no one in it, no matter what time of the year.

5. You use "fix" as a verb. Example: I am fixing to go to the store.

6. All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit, vegetable, grain, insect or animal.

7. You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.

8. You carry jumper cables in your car... for your OWN car.

9. You know what "cow tipping" is

10. You only own four spices: salt, pepper, texas pete and catsup.

11. The local papers cover national and international news on one page but requires 6 pages for local gossip and sports.

12. You think that the first day of deer season is a national holiday.

13. You find 100 degrees Fahrenheit "a little warm"

14. You know all four seasons: Almost summer, summer, still summer, and Christmas.

15. You know whether another North Carolinian is from east, west, or middle North Carolina as soon as they open their mouth.

16. Going to Wal-mart is a favorite past time known as "goin wal-martin" or off to"Wally World"

17. You describe the first cool snap (below 70 degrees) as good pinto-bean weather.

18. A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola, or pop...it's a Coke, regardless of brand or flavor, Example: "What kinna coke you want?"

19. Fried Catfish is the other white meat.

I was in Texas, for almost three years, and I knew it was time to come home when I said, "I'm fixing to....." LOL! It sounded quite funny with the Canadian "eh?!" at the end of that though, :toothy:

ROFL!!!! I saw myself in every one of those!! TOO FUNNY!! What's so funny is they are all true!

A little clarification on "fixin to": To a southerner, this is totally different than "going to." "Fixin to" means I'm going to do it right NOW. "Going to" means I'm going to do it, but it might be now, it might be tomorrow, it might be next week.:)
