Thirteen Clues You're a Tarheel

Thirteen Clues You're a Tarheel

Gleaned from thousands of choices on Carolina Country. I picked out just a few of the ones that I either remember or apply to me.

1. Bananas were for Sunday pudding and not for daily eating

2. You drank a bottle of pop and not a soda

3. You’ve ever had to switch from heat to air-conditioning in the same day

4. You only own four spices: salt, pepper, Texas Pete and Duke’s mayonnaise

5. You know all four seasons: almost summer, summer, still summer and Christmas

6. Fried flounder is the other white meat

7. Your elders told you Raw Hide and Bloody Bones would get you if you left the yard

8. You know how to make “sweet tea”

9. You sat on the porch with your grandma helping her with the cannin’ (which means you shelled peas and butterbeans until your fingers bled)

10. You say, “I’m give out” when you have worked hard and need to rest

11. You rode to the beach in the car with the windows down and your feet hanging out the window

12. You made frog houses in the mud with your foot.

13. You know what “suckering tobacco” means

Well, I'm not a tarheel, but I do drink pop not soda, I have had to do #3 (mid-west weather is crazy too!), and I do know how to make sweet tea. :-)
Happy TT!

Yeah, I bet a lot of these are universal. Nice to meet you! Loved your TT, too!

I just spent a year in NC for school so it's fun to read this list. I don't relate to a lot of these, but I do call soda "pop" and understand what sweet tea really is. Happy Thursday!!

I'm definitely not from there! Interesting list.

Samantha Lucas said...

That sounded wonderful. Made me want to be a tarheel. :)

Had to drop by because I had no idea what a tarheel was and I drink pop. In Canada, we all do.

Amanda Young said...

I'm guilty of doing most of those. Someone just picked at me the other day for saying pop, instead of soda. :)

N.J.Walters said...

LOL Great list! I've always said pop and not soda. :-)
