Ten top ways to see if you might be a Floridian! Just a little fun with my adoptive state!


003 (2)038h2  How do you know that moment in time when you’ve officially become a Floridian? Florida has been my adoptive state for the past five years and I’ve done some intensive ‘scientific research’ on how to discover that point in time when I could say, “Yes, I’m now a Floridian.” If you can say ‘yes’ to 7 out of the 10 following statements–well then–you just might be a Floridian.

1.  If you allow 3-5 car lengths between you and the car in front of you when the stoplight turns green, insuring the third car in line will miss the green light–you might be a Floridian.

2.  If you put the cruise control on 45 when you’re driving down the Florida Turnpike–you might be a Floridian.

3.  When driving anywhere, if you stop in the middle of the road for no apparent reason–you might be a Floridian.

4.  If there’s a Rooms To Go furniture store on the corner every two blocks within a ten mile radius from where you live–you might be a Floridian.

5.  If your grandson puts on a tropical shirt & khaki pants, looks at himself in the mirror, and says, “I look like an old beach man” (Floridian)–you might be a Floridian.

6.  If you think Jimmy Buffet’s song, “Margaritaville” is Florida’s state anthem–you might be a Floridian.

7.  If you understand the statement, “The more north you go, the more south you get–you might be a Floridian.

8.  If you’re in a rainstorm where it’s dropping 4-10 inches of rain & the news tells you to get to higher ground and you realize that would be Georgia–you might be a Floridian.

9.  If you decide you want to get away to a foreign country for vacation, and the first place you think of is Miami–you might be a Floridian.

10. If you feel that wearing pajama bottoms & slippers are acceptable attire at WalMart before 10:00 a.m. and after 10:00 p.m.–you might be a Floridian.

Well, that is my litmus test to see if you’ve officially become a Floridian, and I’m proud to say that I’ve finally past the test, although I refuse to tell which answers put me over the top. But seriously, Florida has  magical places like Disney World, wonderful beaches, wonderful people, interesting weather, and I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. It’s a fun place to be.

Thanks for stopping by!
