Freebie Friday

For the next few months, Chaos College goes to summer hours and though those initial four workdays are long, tedious, and wearisome, we are rewarded at the end of the week with the glorious gift of sleeping in, running errands and playing catch-up as we get a much appreciated jump on sultry, summery, suntastic three-day weekends. Hear hear!

I’m not at all sure he actually said this, but it was darn funny…

Jeff Foxworthy’s Views on Oklahoma

  • “If your local Dairy Queen is closed from September through May, you may live in Oklahoma.”
  • “If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you may live in Oklahoma.”
  • “If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you may live in Oklahoma.”
  • “If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you may live in Oklahoma.” (TBC does this!)
  • “If "vacation" means going anywhere in Oklahoma City for the weekend, you may live in Oklahoma.”
  • “If you measure distance in hours, you may live in Oklahoma.”
  • “If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you may live in Oklahoma.” (guilty, guilty, guilty!)
  • “If you have switched from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day and back again, you may live in Oklahoma.”
  • “If you can drive 75 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, you may live in Oklahoma.”
  • “If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked, you may live in Oklahoma.”
  • “If you carry jumper cables in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you may live in Oklahoma.”
  • “If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you may live in Oklahoma.” (applies to Ohio also)
  • “If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph -- you're going 80 and everybody is passing you, you may live in Oklahoma.”
  • “If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow, you may live in Oklahoma.”
  • “If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction, you may live in Oklahoma.”
  • “If you find 10 degrees "a little chilly", you may live in Oklahoma.”

Aww, some of those are true for here. Doesn't everyone carry jumper cables in their car?

My Mom not only leaves her car unlocked, but leaves the keys in the ignition half the time.
