I received an e-mail from a friend that had some “Jeff Foxworthy” style observastions about St. Louisans, so because I grew up here…I thought I’d share:

If someone mentions “The Landing” and it has nothing to do with the space shuttle, you might…

live in St. Louis.

  • If you have switched from ‘heat’ to ‘A/C’ in the same day and back again, you might live in St. Louis
  • If you design your kid’s Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit,  you might live in St. Louis
  • If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph — you’re going 80 and  everybody is passing you, you might live in St. Louis
  • If you’ve ever skipped school, work, or even a court-date because you had tickets to an afternoon Cards game, you might live in St. Louis
  • If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow, you might live in St. Louis
  • If someone says concrete and you think of Ted Drewes instead of pavement, you might live in St. Louis
  • If you drive 75 miles through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard for some White Castles, you might live in St. Louis

Make sure to comment with your “You might be from St. Louis” observations!  Can’t wait to see ‘em!
