You Know You're a Texan If...12 Ways to Know for Sure

Categories: Texas

We Texans are a proud folk. We think of our state as its own little country and love to point out we are the only state in the union not annexed -- we signed a treaty -- and that affords us a certain let's call it swagger. A lot of people don't care for it, but it's all in good fun (mostly).

The truth is there is a lot to love about the Lone Star State, but to truly be a Texan, there are a number of things you have to know. If there were a test required to become a citizen of Texas -- there isn't? -- these items might not all make the list of questions, but they are requisite knowledge for anyone who has lived here and knows the truth about the world as we know it.

There's that whole "everything is big in Texas" thing and that includes parties.

I wanted to take the tour at Brenham, but the door sign said, "We're closed for lunch. Come back next month."  And through the glass door I could see workers feasting on product. DAMN!!

The Houston media sucks. Only a Houston newspaper paper would snub the local state university that won or shared 4 SWCfootball  titles and went to 5 Final Fours in basketball.Thanks to the poster who put up the later version of SWC mascots.

Nice snub on University of Houston guys.  Anyone else forget about their hometown university?

I know I'm a real Texan because: 1) I was born here. 2) I despise lists of things designed to tell me if I'm a Texan. 3) When I lived overseas, even Germans recognized my accent. 4) I only went to high school football games to make money off the pictures I took. 5) I know how to use a cast net for bait. 6) I can go to the grocery store to get Blue Bell ice cream without have to go to a hick town like Brenham. 7) I don't wear cowboy boots because they hurt my feet and I don't want to look like some hick from Brenham. 8) I can shoot the eyeball out of a carnival shooting gallery duck with a BB gun. 9) Many of my neighbors are Hispanic and I like them. 10) On "Go Texan" day I wear a nice pair of slacks, a collared t-shirt, and comfortable shoes just like every other day.
