You think nobody over 70 should be allowed to drive

Flip-flops are everyday wear

Shoes are for business meetings and church

No, wait, flip-flops are good for church too, unless it's Easter or Christmas

Sweet tea can be served at any meal

An alligator has walked thru your neighborhood

You smirk when a game show's "grand prize" is a trip to Florida

You measure distance in minutes

You have a drawer full of bathing suits and one sweatshirt

You get annoyed at the tourists who feed seagulls

All the local festivals are named after a fruit

A mountain is any hill 100 feet above sea level

You think everyone from a bigger city has a northern accent

You know the 4 seasons really are: almost summer, summer, not summer but really hot, and Christmas

It's not soda, cola, or pop. It's coke, regardless of brand or flavor, " what kinda coke you want?"

Anything under 95 is just warm

You've hosted a hurricane party

You go to a theme park for an afternoon...and know when to get on the best rides

You pass on the right and honk at the elderly

You understand the futility of exterminating **CENSORED**roaches

You can pronounce Okeechobee, Kissimmee, and Withlacoochee

You understand why it's better to have a friend with a boat, than have a boat yourself

Bumper stickers on the truck in front of you include: various fish, NRA, Nascar, Go Gators and a confederate flag

You get angry when people say " Florida isn't really part of THE SOUTH"

You've worn shorts AND used the a/c on Christmas

You know what the stingray shuffle is and why it's important

You recognize Miami-Dade as "Northern Cuba"

I never realized other people didn't measure distance in minutes until I moved to VA.  I am constantly shaking my head in frustration and saying, "Give it to me in minutes."
