Wren's World

You Might Be From A Small Town IF.....

The "City Limits" signs are both on the same post!

You can name everyone you graduated with.

You said a 'cuss' word and your parents knew within the hour.

You can't help but date a friend's ex-girlfriend/boyfriend.

You ever went cow-tipping or snipe hunting.

The "City Jail" is called AMOEBA because it only has one cell.

You could never buy cigarettes because all the store clerks knew how old you were (and if you were old enough, they'd tell your parents anyhow).

When you did find someone old enough and brave enough to buy cigarettes, you still had to go out to the country and drive on back roads to smoke them.

Your car stays filthy because of the dirt roads.

The one-block-long "Main Street" dead ends in both directions.

You used to cruise "main."

You refer to anyone with a house newer than 1980 as the "rich people".

Getting paid minimum wage is considered a raise.

The "phone book" has only one page.

Your teachers call you by your older siblings names.

Your teachers remember when they taught your parents.

Even the ugly people enter beauty contests.

"Second Street" is in the next town over.

The town next to you is considered "trashy" or "snooty," but is actually just like your town.

It was cool to date someone from the neighboring town.

The people in the "big" city dress funny, then you pick-up on the trend two years later.

You were a Boy/Girl Scout

You know what 4-H is.

Football coaches suggest that you haul hay for the summer to get stronger.

You ever went to parties at a pasture, barn, or in the middle of a dirt road.

You had senior skip day.

The whole school went to the same party after graduation.

Your letter jacket was worn after your 19th birthday.

You don't give directions by street names, rather directions by references (turn by Nelson's house, go two blocks east of Anderson's, and it's four houses left of the track field).

A "Night On The Town" takes only 11 minutes.

Weekend excitement involves a trip to a Wal-Mart.

Directions are given using "the" stop light as a reference.

Anyone you want can be found at either the Dairy Queen or the feed store.

The Mayor had to annex property to eat a foot-long hot dog.

The closest McDonald's is 30 miles away.

The closest mall is over an hour away.

School gets canceled for state events.

You were ever in the Homecoming parade.

You have ever gone home for Homecoming


You bragged to your friends because you got pipes on your truck for your birthday.

You see at least one friend a week driving a tractor through town or one of your friends drives a grain truck to school occasionally.

You decide to walk somewhere for exercise and 5 people pull over and ask if you need a ride.

It is normal to see an old man riding through town on a riding lawn mower.

You laugh your butt off reading this because you know they're all true
and forward it to everyone who lives in your town. (because you know them all!)
