You might be a Floridian if:

You wake up on Christmas morning and find new scuba gear under the tree, so you drive down to Key Largo to try it out.

You feel like having a glass of orange juice, and go pick the oranges in your backyard.

You’re going on a cruise and are upset because the traffic if backed up and it takes almost an hour to get from your house to the dock.

Your drive to work is lined with all varieties of palm trees, and it’s green all year.

You freeze when Winter strikes, with a passion, and the temperature plummets to 50 degrees!

You’re sitting in your yard and a flock of Flamingos (or Egrets, or Parrots, or….) flies overhead.

You eat Thanksgiving dinner wearing shorts and a t-shirt.

Life, in general, is like living on a Caribbean island.

Too funny - but I have one to add - you might be a Floridian if you can still keep a sense of humour after all that has happened lately - I admire all of you for taking things so well. YOU GO FLORIDA!!! TTFN Jennifer
