YOU MIGHT JUST BE FROM MINNESOTA IF
« on: January 16, 2002, 10:17:36 AM »
YOU MIGHT JUST BE FROM MINNESOTA IF:
You consider it a sport to gather your food by drilling through l8 inches of ice and sitting there all day hoping the food will swim by.
                                     
You are proud that your state makes the national news 96 nights each year because International
Falls is the coldest spot in the nation.
                                   
You have ever refused to buy something because it's too "spendy."
                                   
Your local Dairy Queen is closed from November through March.
                                   
You instinctively walk like a penguin for five months out of the year.
                                     
Someone in a store offers you assistance, and they don't work there.
                                   
Your suntan stops at a line curving around the middle of his forehead.
                                   
You have apologized to a telemarketer.
                                     
You may not have actually eaten it, but you have heard of Lutefisk.
                                   
You have worn shorts and a parka at the same time.
                                   
You have either a pet or a child named "Jackson", "Ole" or "Lady".
                                   
Your town has an equal number of bars and churches.
                                   
You have had an entire telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number.
                                     
You know how to say Wayzata, Mahtomedi, Edina and Shakopee.
                                     
You grew up thinking rice was only for dessert.
                                     
You think that ketchup is a little too spicy.
                                     
Every time you see moonlight on a lake, you think of a dancing bear, and sing, gently, "From the
land of sky-blue Waters..........Hamm's-the beer refreshing..."
                                   
Your daily meals are breakfast, dinner, and supper.
                                   
Every January, from age 2 to l3, you let your older siblings talk you into putting your tongue on the
iron post.
                                   
You consider Lime Jell-O a highly versatile food: a breakfast dish when it is filled with fruit,
a salad when it has shredded carrots and a dab of mayonnaise, and a dessert when topped with Cool Whip.
                                   
You never had to rewind any part of "Fargo" because you missed some of the dialogue.
                                   
You always believed that vacation meant "going up north."
                                   
Your town has an annual festival honoring a fruit, vegetable, or ethnic food.
                                   
The first time you saw "Grumpy Old Men," you thought it was a documentary.
                                   
You can recite, from memory, more than a half-dozen "Ole and Lena" jokes.
                                     
Your dog dies, your spouse leaves you, you lose your job, and your car breaks down, all on the
same day, and your first thought is, "It could be worse."
                                   
You don't think it odd that there is a heater in the outdoor Coke machine.
                                   
It's  60 degrees warmer in your freezer than it is outdoors.
                                   
You can translate BWCA.
                                   
You have ever gone cross-country skiing at the zoo.
                                   
You have eaten "hot dish" and Jell-O salad in the basement of a Lutheran church.
                                   
You go to Starbucks, look at the menu, then say "Umm...I'll just have some coffee, thanks."

Well, guys, I finally have to admiti it, I married one of your two legged critters from Minn.   The one out of the list that sure does not fit her today is the one that ends with "spendy" :D       She was raised in her early years in and around Brainard (sp).  She is not here to help with the spelling, sorry folks.    Another thing she is blonde clear through the roots and part Chippowa. but the best darn choker setter I ever had behind a cat.   8) 8) 8)
