Exclamation You know your from texas when:

*You can properly pronounce Corsicana, Ennis, Waxahachie, Palestine, Decatur, Wichita Falls, San Antonio, Waco, and Amarillo.

*A tornado warning siren is your signal to go out in the yard and look for a funnel.

*You've ever had to switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.

*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.

*You think everyone from a bigger city has an accent.

*You measure distance in minutes.

*Little Smokies are something you serve only for special occasions.

*You listen to the weather forecast before picking out an outfit.

*You know cowpies are not made of beef.

*Someone you know has used a football schedule to plan their wedding date.

*You have known someone who has had one belt buckle bigger than your fist.

*You aren't surprised to find movie rental, ammunition, and bait all in the same store.

*A Mercedes Benz is not a status symbol. A Chevy 3500 4x4 is.

*You know everything goes better with Ranch.

*You go to the river/lake because you think it is like going to the ocean.

*You go to the gas station and there is a sign in the window that reads, "No Shoes, No Shirt, No Service!"

*Your family pet is the stray dog with one leg that came limping up to your door.

*You say "Up-their" when you are refering to a place "Over there".

* You say "yall" as if it was normal.

*You get made fun of for the way you talk.

*People always ask you if you own a horse and ride it to school.

*You get asked if you say "howdy"

*the weather can be sunny one day...rainy another and snowy the next.

*You actually get these jokes and are "fixin' " to send them to your friends.

*Finally you are 100% Texan if you have ever heard this conversation:

"You wanna coke?"
"Yeah."
"What kind?"
"Dr. Pepper."

Me too! Mike Parsons gave it to me when I hit 5000 posts.

I've been to Ennis. Our company has a manufacturing plant there.

You do know that the city Waco and the airplane WACO are not pronounced the same?

The A in WACO is a long A. The WA in WACO is like the WA in water.

You're from Texas (or Alberta) if a cannon aimed knee-high will just make a big bang with no injury...

Actually the word "yall" is spelled "ya'll" compound for "you all", pluralizing the word "ya" (short for you) identifying a single person in the southern United States dialect. However with every plural, there is a southern plural to the standard plural to the southern slang "ya" which is "all ya'll" which is indiscriminate and refers to "everyone" in general.

Damn.. see what ya’ll got this New York native runnin on about…
