    Things I have learned living in North Carolina

    1. Possums sleep in the middle of the road with their feet in the air

    2 There are 5,000 types of snakes and 4,998 of them live in NORTH CAROLINA

    3. There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 of them live in NORTH CAROLINA, plus a couple no one's seen before.

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

    5."Onced" and "Twiced" are words.

    6. It is not a Shopping cart, it is a buggy.

    7. Fire ants consider your flesh as a picnic.

    8. People actually grow and eat okra.

    9. "Fixinto" is one word.

    10. There is no such thing as "lunch". There is only dinner and then there is supper.

    11. Ice tea is appropriate for all meals and you start drinking it when you're two. We do like a little tea with our sugar!

    12. Backards and forwards means "I know everything about you."

    13. The word "Jeet" is actually a phrase meaning "Did you eat?"

    14. 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.

    15. You don't PUSH buttons, you MASH them.


    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 use "fix" as a verb For example: "I'm fixing to go to the store "

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

    5. You install security lights on your house and garage, then leave both unlocked.

    6. You know what a "DAWG" is.

    7. You carry jumper cables in your car .. For your OWN car.

    8. You only own five spices: salt, pepper, Texas Pete, Tabasco and ketchup.


    9. The local papers cover national and international news on one page, but require 6 pages for local gossip and sports.

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

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

    12. You know all four seasons: Almost Summer, Summer, still Summer and Christmas.

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

    14. You describe the first cool snap (below 70 degrees) as good soup weather.

    15. A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola or pop. It's a Pepsi, regardless of brand or flavor. For example: "What kinda pepsi you want?"

    16. Fried catfish is the other white meat.

    17. We don't need no stinking driver's Ed. If our mama says we can drive, we can drive.

    18. You understand these jokes and forward them to your friends from North Carolina (and those who just wish they were). Not EVERYONE can be a North CAROLINIAN, it's an art form and a gift from God!

    AMEN!!!!!

    You start calling everyone "bigun'".
    I am embaressed that I have begun doing this.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.

    I've only driven through North Carolina once, but according to your list I'm about 70% Carolinian.

    Awwww sorry to hear that. Well if it makes ya feel better my ex still lives here too, except he moved about 2hrs away from me, so maybe we'll get lucky and they'll live in the same area and sink or fall into the ocean or whatever is fine with me

    That list is soooo funny, I think. OMG, I soooo do a lot of things on that list ... classic example like above I measure distance in minutes or hours ...

    2. You've ever had to switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.
    GRRR this drives me absolutely BATTY!!!! I always worry it will somehow mess with the condenser or something changing heat and AC back and forth in the same day.

    Let's not forget the phrase "might could." I hated that phrase when I got here, just sooooo wrong, and now it just rolls off my tongue before I can stop it!

    I love sweet tea and fine women who say "y'all."

    If my wife could find a job down there paying what she makes here, I'd be "fixin" to move south in a heartbeat. NC would be one of the first places I would consider, along w/ TN. Things just seem less stressful in the south.
