2. You think people who complain about the heat in
their states are sissies. justified by the fact that you can take a shower in July by stepping outside on a sunny day for only a half hour

3. A tornado warning siren is your signal to go
out in the yard and look for a funnel. or under the carport, atleast

4. You know that the true value of a parking space
is not determined by the distance to the door, but by the availability of shade. and also because there's got to be an argument for my lifted truck being hotter due to it's closer vicinity to the sun

5. Stores don't have bags or shopping carts, they
have sacks and buggys. and you can come up with a million different creative things to do with each of them

6. You've seen people wear bib overalls at
funerals. and school prom

7. You think everyone from a bigger city has an accent. north of the Mason Dixon, which actually starts on the TN-KY border, yes

8. You measure distance in minutes. or 'whiles'. e.g. a while, a little while, etc.

9. You go to the lake because you think it is like going to the ocean. Smith Lake, yes

10. You listen to the weather forecast before picking out an outfit. and still end up getting it wrong

11. You know cowpies are not made of beef. nor do they tip very easily

12. Someone you know has used a football schedule to plan their wedding date. it is an understood that you never have anniversaries or showers on a football weekend

13. You have known someone who has a belt buckle bigger than your fist. or hair bigger than your toaster

14. You aren't surprised to find movie rental, ammunition, beer, and bait all in the same store. we are masters of chinzy efficiency

15. A Mercedes Benz isn't a status symbol. A Chevy Silverado Extended Bed Crew Cab is. who left out 4WD!?

16. You know everything goes better with Ranch. or Dale's. Or Milo's sauce

17. You learned how to shoot a gun before you learned how to multiply. or you went hunting by yourself as a kid before you starting going with groups of friends as an adult

18. You actually get these jokes and are "fixin' "to send them to your friends. like that's an improper phrase or something?....

Finally:

19. you are 100% Alabamian if you have ever had

... and Dothan.

I used to cringe every Fall Saturday hearing the network TV announcer talk about "that fine young athlete from Dothan [soft "O" sound], Alabama."

Great list, Bama-Shooter!

We scheduled my first cousin's funeral around a football game. One more day to him didn't make any difference.
