Someone forwarded this to my mailbox. I usually don't read forwards but the title got me curious. Some of this stuff is SO TRUE!
THINGS I LEARNED FROM BEING RAISED IN ARKANSAS
Armadillos sleep in the middle of the road with their feet in the air.
There are 5,000 types of snakes on earth and 4,998 live in Arkansas
There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 live in Arkansas , plus a couple no one's seen before.
If it grows, it sticks; if it crawls, it bites. (and if it's flying and biting you -it's a mosquito!)
'Twiced' is a word.
People actually grow and eat okra (I LOVE FRIED OKRA!)
'Fixinto' is one word. (I say this at least once a day)
There is no such thing as 'lunch.' There is only dinner and then supper. (It can be confusing if someone invites you over for "dinner"... so should I come at noon or at 7:00 pm?)
Iced tea is appropriate for all meals and you start drinking it when you're two. We do like a little tea with our sugar! (I wish I had some sweet tea right now!)
'Backwards and forwards' means I know everything about you!
Djeet is actually a phrase meaning 'Did you eat?'
You don't PUSH buttons, you MASH them. (Older people say this, lol)
You measure distance in hours. Like its 3 hours from Little Rock to Fort Smith . (I never know how many "miles" it is to somewhere)
You'll probably have to switch from 'heat' to 'A/C' in the same day.
You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked. (We never locked our doors growing up -house or cars. My parents still don't.)
Yes, a Friday night high school football games is serious football!
You carry jumper cables in your car . . . for your OWN car. (Doesn't everybody?)
There are only four spices: salt, pepper, Tabasco and ketchup. (Minus the Tabasco, add Louisiana hot sauce)
The local papers cover national and international news on one page, but require 6 pages for local gossip and sports.
100 degrees Fahrenheit is 'a little warm.' (actually, complaining about the weather is a favorite pastime. "It's not the heat, it's the humidity!")
We have four seasons: Almost Summer, Summer, still Summer and Christmas. (Where I grew up, we were lucky to get one snow a year!)
Going to Wal-Mart is a favorite past time known as 'goin' to Wally-World.' (We went at least 3 times a week.)
A cool snap (below 70 degrees) is good pinto-bean weather. (I have no idea what this means...)
A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola or pop, it's a Coke, regardless of brand or flavor. Example: 'What kind a coke you want?' (This is 100% true)
Fried catfish is the other white meat.
We don't need no stinking driver's Ed. If our mama says we can drive, we can drive. (I got my permit when I was 14, lol)
If you understand these jokes please forward them to your friends from Arkansas (and those who just wish they were).
EVERYONE can't be from Arkansas . You might say it's a gift from God!
And the most important thing we learn growing up in ARKANSAS is... IN GOD WE TRUST
I Love Arkansas and would never want to move anywhere else. But if I had to choose, I would pick... Texas :)
