You know you're from New England if...

Stole this from Rebloggin' Baugher... It's sooo true!!!


-you use the word “wicked”

-you’ve worn shorts and a parka at the same time.

-if you hit deer on a regular basis.

-you know that the things you need to start a campfire are matches, newspaper, tinder, sticks, fuel logs, and spent motor oil.

-chocolate sprinkles will forever be known as “Jimmies.”

-“Vacation” means going anywhere south of New York City for the weekend.

-you can go from one side of your hometown to the other in less than 15 minutes and see atleast 15 losers you graduated with doing the exact same thing they were doing the last time you saw them.

-you measure distance in hours.

-you have switched from “heat” to “A/C” in the same day and back again.

-there are 25 Dunkin ’ Donuts within 20 minutes of your house.

-the transportation system is known as the “T,” subway is just a fast food place.

-you meant to go to cvs, but you miss the turn by five feet and wind up at walgreens; look across the street, and decide you’d better go to brooks instead.

-a Crown Victoria = undercover cop.

-Sox-Yankees games are a life and death matter.
