You know you're from the Twin Cities if...
April 6, 2007 6:29pm CST
You measure distance in minutes. Weather is 80% of your conversation. Snow tires came standard on your car. You have no concept of public transportation. 75% of your graduating class went to the University of Minnesota. You know more than one person who has hit a deer. You know what and where Dinkytown is. Perkins was a popular hangout in high school. You have no problem saying or spelling Minneapolis. You can list all the Dales. You hate Fargo (the movie) but realize that a lot of your family talks that way. You get mad at people who think Fargo is in Minnesota. Your school classes have been cancelled because of snow or cold. You assume when you say "The Cities" people know what you are talking about. You have tried boiled fish in lye at Christmas. You've licked frozen metal. The only reason you go to Wisconsin is to get fireworks, to buy beer on Sundays or you got bad directions. You wear shorts when it's 50 degrees in March, but bundle up and complain in August when it goes below 60 degrees. You know people that have more fishing poles than teeth. You remember WLOL and WDGY. When you talk about the opener you are not talking about cans. You have gone trick or treating in 3 feet of snow. You carry jumper cables in your car. You drink pop, not soda. Everyone you know has a cabin. You voted for a pro wrestler for Governor...and he won.
