Things I have learned about Texas!!!

Armadillos sleep in the middle of the road with all four feet in the air.

There are 5,000 types of snakes and 4,998 live in Texas. There are 10,000
types of spiders. All 10,000 live in Texas, plus a few no one has ever
seen before.

Raccoons will test your melon crop and let you know when they are ripe.

If it grows, it will stick you. If it crawls, it will bite you!

Nothing will kill a mesquite tree.

There are valid reasons some people put razor wire around their house.

A tractor is NOT an all terrain vehicle. They do get stuck.

The wind blows at 90 mph from Oct 2 till June 25, then it stops totally
until October 2.

Onced and twiced are words.

Coldbeer is one word.

People actually grow and eat okra.

Green grass DOES burn.

When you live in the country you don't have to buy a dog. City people
drop them off at your front gate in the middle of the night.

The sound of coyotes howling at night only sounds good for the first few
weeks.

When a buzzard sits on the fence and stares at you, it's time to see a
doctor.

Fixin-to is one word

A TANK is a dirt hole that holds water for irrigation, watering the cows,
or swimming.

There ain't no such thing as"lunch". There is only dinner and then
there's supper.

"Sweetened ice tea" is appropriate for all meals and you start drinking
it when you are two.

Backwards and forwards means I know everything about you.

"Jeet?" is actually a phrase meaning, "did you eat?"

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.

You Know you are from Texas if:
1. You measure distance in minutes.
2. You've ever had to switch for "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.
3. Stores don't have bags, they have sacks.
4. You see a car with the engine running in the Walmart parking lot with
no one in it, no mater what time of the year.
5.You use "fix" as a verb. Example: I am fixin' to go to the store (note:
in the portion above "fix-in-to" is one word....).
6. All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit or a
vegetable.
7. You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both
unlocked.
8. You carry jumper cables for your own car.
9. You know what and "snipe hunting" is.
10. You only have four spices in your kitchen: Salt, Pepper, Catsup, and
Tabasco.
11. You think everyone from north of Dallas has an accent.
13. The local paper covers national and international news on one page
but requires six pages to cover Friday night high school football.
14. You think that the first day of deer season is a national holiday.
16. You find 100 degrees a "tad" warm
17. You know all four seasons: Almost summer, summer, still summer and
Christmas.
18. You know whether another Texan is from East, West, North, or South
Texas as soon as he opens his mouth.
19. Going to Walmart is a favorite past-time known as "goin Walmartin'"
or "off to Wally-world".
20. You describe the first cool snap (below 70 degrees) as good chili
weather.
21. A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola, or pop....It's a Coke
regardless of brand of flavor.

Isn't fix most often used as a verb?

e.g. I will fix the car.

Damn straight. These were all pretty accurate, but I was pretty proud that these 3 can distinguish us as Texans.

in addition to "Jeet" "Yant" is also short for "do you want" as in
"Jeet yet?"
"nah"
"Yant too?"

Hahaha - i grew up calling everything carbonated Coke even though I hate Coca-Cola... I'd go to a restraunt and ask for coke and he'd bring coca-cola and I'd be pissed saying I wanted root beer or dr pepper... how was i supposed to know they didnt speak texan

Those are all so true... I just never knew it was only texans who did em. Like wally-world or measuring distance in time... haha

Not if you're from Texas....then it would be "I'm fixin to fix the car"
