I'm not from Minnesota, but I went to college there for a while. Things that I could relate to...
*The weather is usually 80% of your conversation.
*When you say "down south" you're referring to Iowa.
*You've never taken public transportation.
*"Perkins" was the only hangout option in high school.
*You assume when you say "The Cities" people know where you're talking about.

*You can list all the "-dales." Can't list them, but I know there's a ton of them.

*You know the 2 sports-related reasons why we hate Dallas.
I know one of them. But what's the other?

*You're a loyal Target shopper.

*You wear shorts when it's 50 degrees outside in March

*You've not only walked across a lake, you've driven across one.
Never did it, but saw others doing it. I was afraid my Illinois insurance agent just wouldn't understand if I happened to be the guy that broke through the ice.

*You know that Lake Wobegon isn't real and you know who made it up, where they live, and exactly what you want to do about it.

He wasn't as big a deal back when I was in college, or he just wasn't in our circle. Always wondered how most real residents felt about him.

*Your local Dairy Queen is closed from December through February.

*You have worn shorts and a parka at the same time.

*You laugh out loud every time you see a news report about a blizzard shutting down the entire East Coast.
*You never meet any celebrities except The "BODY"
I had an acquainance who spotted him at the gym one time.
*You know what and where "Dinkytown" is.
Spent plent of time there. At the Pizza Hut.
*You believe that the Vikings would have won four Super Bowls by now if they were still playing in Metropolitan Stadium.
I always wondered if that was the case.
*You've seen "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" in Uptown.
I had friends that went.
*You know that everyone has a city preference -- Minneapolis or St. Paul.

I love reading those things. I have only been In MN for 7 years and I'm really starting to see most of those things come true. Came from Nebraska, so I'm used to reading those kinds of emails.

fonefiddy is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.fonefiddy is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Last time I was in Vegas, a bartender figured out I was from either, N. Mn. or the UP.

Just from saying, " I'll have a Windsor/Coke, Please"

It was a little game he played. He said the drink order of Windsor, put me from the upper midwest. "No one else even know's what Windsor is." And the way I pronounced the 'O' in Windsor & Coke, put me in the upper regions of MN, or Mi.

He also said I musta had a good MaMa. Not many peeps, from about south of Iowa say Please/Thank You.
