You Know You are in Louisiana When.............

You Know You are in Louisiana When.............

You think the breeze from a flying roach feels good on a hot summer night.

You shake out your shoes before putting them on.

Your sunglasses fog up when you step outside.

No matter where else you go in the world, you are always disappointed in the
food.

You get up in the morning and start cooking a pot of rice before you give
any
thought to what you'll fix for dinner.

Your accent sounds nothing like Harry Connick, Jr.'s.

Your baby's first words are "long beads."

You ask, "How dey running?" and "Are dey fat?" but you're inquiring about
seafood quality.

When a hurricane is imminent, you have a lot more faith in Nash Roberts than
Super Doppler 6000.

Nothing shocks you, period, ever. Not politics, hurricanes, red lights,
parking tickets, the Saints, Mardi Gras.

Your "one martini lunch" becomes a "five Bloody Mary afternoon" and you keep
your job.

You're walking with a plastic cup of beer. When it starts to rain, you cover
your beer instead of your head.

Your idea of health food is a baked potato instead of fries with your fried
seafood platter.

You have snow ball stains on your shoes.

You call tomato sauce "red gravy."

Your middle name is your mother's maiden name or your father's mother's
maiden name or your mother's mother's maiden name or your grandmother's
mother's
maiden name or your grandfather's mother's maiden name.

You know you recycled too much newspaper when there isn't enough for the
dinner (or crawfish) table.

You are going through customs and the agent asks you where you're from and
you answer, & you answer "Gentilly."

You eat snow balls instead of throwing them.

Your house payment is less than your air conditioning bill.

You push little old ladies out of the way to catch Mardi Gras throws.

Catching "crabs" makes you smile.

You write "crookedpolitician" as one word.

You know it's "ask" but you purposely say "ax."

You understand it when someone describes their favorite color as K & B
purple.

You wear sweaters in October because it ought to be cold then.

Someone asks you, "Where you at?" and you tell them how you are.

You are left behind at an out-of-town bar searching for a "go cup."

You think of potholes as naturally occurring speed bumps.

Your grandparents are called "Maw Maw" and "Paw Paw."

You suck the heads, sing the blues and actually know where you got them
shoes.

You don't buy groceries, you make groceries.

You cringe every time you hear an actor with a Southern or Cajun accent in a
"New Orleans-based" movie or TV show.

You have to reset your clocks after every thunderstorm.

You waste more time navigating back streets than you would if you just sat
in
traffic.

You fall asleep to the soothing sounds of four box fans.

You eat dinner out and spend the entire meal talking about all the other
good
places you've eaten.

And you'll know you are Cajun Country,

Before you cook, "First you make a rue."

The worst food you had there was better than the best anywhere else.

A Yankee is anybody "Nort" of Alexandria, LA. "Sout" in below Alexandria.

You turn the air conditioner on high so it will be cold enough to enjoy gumbo.

When you realize that you just thought your previous food was seasoned.

You realize you are in Heaven.

You carry your own bottle of Tabasco Sauce everywhere you go "just in case".

the homicide cases can't be solved because all the DNA is the same and...there are no dental records.
