You might be from Oklahoma if:

May 12, 2003
The top 10 ways (and a few extras to boot! ) to know you're from Oklahoma: 1. It doesn't bother you to use an airport named for a man who died in an airplane crash. 2. You can properly pronounce Eufaula, Gotebo, Okemah and Chickasha. 3. You know that the true value of a parking space is not determined by the distance to the door but by the availability of shade. 4. You understand the difference between 3. 2 and 6 point and more than once you've made a beer run to another state. 5. A tornado warning siren is your signal to go out in the yard and look for a funnel. 6. You are 100% Oklahoman if you have ever had this conversation: "You wanna Coke? " "Yeah. " "What kind? " "Dr. Pepper. " 7. "Vacation" means going to the family reunion. 8. You've seen all the biggest bands ten years after they were popular. 9. You measure distance in minutes. 10. You use fix as a verb. Example: "I am fixin' to go to the store". A FEW OTHERS: You carry jumper cables in your car. You only own 3 spices: salt, pepper, and ketchup. You think sexy lingerie is a tee shirt and boxer shorts. The local paper covers national and international headlines on one page but requires 6 pages for sports. You find 90 degrees F "a little warm. " ** You know all 4 seasons: Almost Summer, Summer, Still Summer, and Christmas. You actually get these jokes and forward them to all your friends from Oklahoma.
