You’ve never met any celebrities

“Vacation” means going to Cedar Point

Half the change in your pocket is Canadian

You know when it has rained because of the smell of worms

It’s easy to get Vernors Ginger Ale, Sanders Hot Fudge sauce and Faygo Pop

At least 1 member of your family disowns you the week of the Michigan/Michigan State game

You measure distance in minutes

When giving directions, you refer to “A Michigan Left”

You know several people who have hit a deer

Your school classes are cancelled because of snow

You’ve had to switch from “heat” to “AC” in the same day

You know how to pronounce “Mackinac”

Octopus and hockey go together as naturally as hot dogs and baseball

Your little league game was snowed out

You drive 60 mph through 2 feet of snow in a raging blizzard, without flinching

You end your sentences with unnecessary prepositions…such as “where is my coat at” or “if you’re going, I want to come with”

All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit, vegetable, grain, or some kind of animal

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

You carry jumper cables in your car

You know more about chill factors and lake effect than you’d EVER like to know

You design Halloween costumes to fit over snowsuits

Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are all filled with snow

You think everyone from other states have accents

You never know what the weather is going to be like because it changes daily

In order to show someone where you live, you just point to your hand

You bake with SODA and drink a POP

Traveling coast-to-coast means driving from Port Huron to Muskegon

You think deer season is a national holiday

You drive 86 mph on the highway and pass on the right

Owning a Japanese car was a hangin’ offense in your hometown

The snow freezes so hard that you can actually walk across it and not break it or leave any marks

You know which leaves make good toilet paperYou know that Kalamazoo not only exists, but it is either raining or snowing there (and it’s not that far from Hell)

You know all four seasons: winter, almost winter, hotter than hell, and constructionYou know how to play (and pronounce) Euchre

Your idea of a traffic jam is 40 cars waiting to pass an orange barrelHome Depot on any Saturday is busier than toy stores at Christmas

There is a McDonald’s in every town with a population of 1000 or moreYou think Devil’s Night is celebrated everywhere

You believe that “down south” means Toledo

Half your friends have a perfect sledding hill right in their own backyard

You know what a “Yooper” is

“Up North” means north of Clare
