While this list made absolutely no sense to me, I still found it enjoyable!

Here's a little list from my home state, Minnesota.

You Know You're a Minnesotan if...

You know several people who have hit a deer.

You end your sentences with an unnecessary preposition. Example: "Where's my coat at?" or "If you go to town I wanna go with."

You carry jumper cables in your car.

You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

You find -20 degrees F "a little chilly".

People from other states love to hear you say words with O's in them.

Your husband thinks sexy lingerie is a flannel nightgown with only 8 buttons.

A brat is something you eat.

When you tell someone where you are from and they say: "I thought that was part of Canada."

-every time you see moonlight on a lake you think of a dancing bear, and sing, gently, "From the land of sky-blue waters . . . Hamm's, the beer refreshing. Hamm's, the beer refreshing."

-you think that "UFF DA" is a standard English phrase.

-you know how to say Wayzata, Mahtomedi, and Shakopee.

-you are proud that your state makes the national news 96 nights each year because International Falls, Minnesota is the coldest spot in the nation.

-you have ever refused to buy something because it's too "spendy."

-you like to come in out of the sun when the temperature gets above 72.

-you may not have actually eaten it, but you have heard of Lutefisk.

-you have ever worn shorts and a parka at the same time.
