If You Are From Colorado......

I got this in an email and thought it was pretty funny. And true too.

Quote:
If you're from Colorado!!


This is crazy...cuz none of this is an exaggeration lol
If your from Colorado....

You'll eat ice cream in the winter.

It snows 5 inches and you don't expect school to be cancelled.

You'll wear flip flops every day of the year, regardless of temperature.

You have no accent at all, but can hear other people's. And then you make fun of them.

"Humid" is over 25%.

Your sense of direction is: Toward the mountains and Away from the mountains.

You say "the interstate" and everybody knows which one.

You think that May is a totally normal month for a blizzard, and you grew up planning your Halloween costumes around your coat.

You know what the Continental Divide is.

You don't think Coors beer is that big a deal.

You went to Casa Bonita as a child.

You bought your car from John Elway.

You were tear gassed at college and you can't even remember why....something about football...

You've gone off-roading in a vehicle that was never intended for such activities.

You always know the elevation of where you are.

You know that there are two kinds of Colorado Girls: those who shave, and those who don't.

You wake up to a beautiful, 80 degree day and you wonder if it's going to snow tomorrow.

You don't care that some company renamed it, the Broncos still play at Mile High.

You know that Colfax is a street you would most likely find a hooker.

You get pissed off when people confuse Colorado with Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, or "one of those other big square states out west."

When you hear that the Chiefs and the Raiders are having bad seasons, you laugh uncontrollably.

Every movie theater has military and student discounts.

Everybody wears jeans to church.

You actually know that South Park is a real place not just a show on TV.

You know what a "trust fund hippy" is, and you know its natural habitat is Boulder.

You've made naked snow angels.

You know you're talking to a fellow Coloradoan when they call it Elitches, not Six Flags.

You can never figure out why your out-of-town guests faint from altitude sickness on a picnic to the mountains.

Your two favorite teams are the Broncos and whoever is beating the crap out of the Raiders.

You've been to the original Chipotle near the DU campus on Evans.

When people out East tell you they have mountains in their state too, you just laugh.

You go anywhere else on the planet and the air feels "sticky" and you notice the sky is no longer blue.

"Your sense of direction is: Toward the mountains and Away from the mountains."

And then sometimes, when I'm actually in the mountains, especially at high noon, I have no idea which direction I'm going.

I got this new Suunto watch so I always know the elevation. My wife just rolls her eyes.

I went to Indiana a few moths back and the sky in no way could be considered any shade of blue.

And when I'm on the western slope I always think east is west.

I would love to have a watch like that. I think I found it on their website; nice, even has a barometer?

I've got a GPS, but it's kinda clunky and slow. Guess I could strap it to my wrist...

The last watch I bought was a dive watch, witch just tells time, is water resistant and not very exciting...

So true.....well not when I first moved out here. I'm originally from California and I remember the first time I called some place downtown Colorado Springs for directions. Whenever anyone told me go north, south, east or west I almost want to say "Can't you just f***ing say turn left or right?" til I realized the mountains were a very good point for.....north...south...east or west .......

You might want to edit your post. Defeating the censor is a . And don't tell 'Cause you're from CA.
