Phun Phridays-"I was taught the fear of Jesus in a small town"-John Cougar


1. You can name everyone you graduated with.
Thats easy there was only 12 that walked the stage in my class.
2. You know what *FFA* is.
Future Farmers of America and FHA (Future Homemakers of America)
3. You ever went to parties @ a pasture, barn or middle of a dirt road.
Lets not forget the caleche pit.
4. Your idea of a *FUN* weekend was ridin around parkin lots cause that is where *EVERYBODY* was.
5. Your idea of an *EXCITiNG* weekend was watchin a fight in the parkin lot.
Hoping that you werent next!
6. You swore @ someone & your parents knew within the hour.
Even faster for me since my mom was a teacher :(
7. You ever went cow-tipping or *SNIPE HUNTIN*.
8. School gets canceled for city, county or state events.
Stock Show
9. You were in the *Homecoming* parade.
Parade? You have to have enough people to line the streets to have a parade.
10. You have ever gone home for homecoming.
Of course
11. Everyone thought it was really cool to date someone from the neighboring town.
Well of course...we are not Arkansas.
12. You had *Senior Skip Day*.
Everybody doesnt do that?
13. The whole school went to the same party after graduation.
Yes and...?
14. You don’t give directions by street names, but instead like this: Turn right by Nelson’s house, go 2 blocks east past Anderson’s camp; it’s 4 houses left of the track field.
Track field? We practiced for track on the county road by the football field.
15. The *CoUnTrY cLuB* golf course had only 9 holes (or there wasn’t even one).
No Country Club. However we were members of the "
Country Club"
16. You can’t help but date a friends ex-boyfriend/girlfriend.
Sounds like a
Cars song to me...Maybe they were small town folk?
17. You refer anyone with a house newer then 1980 as the *Rich People*
My parents built our house in '77....and it it still the newest in town.
18. The people in the city dress funny, then your town picks up on the trend a few years later.
I was still sporting a mullet until '91
19. You bragged to your friends because you got *Pipes* on your truck for your birthday.
I never had a truck. If i had they would have been straights and LOUD.
20. Anyone you want can be found @ either the *DAIRY QUEEN* or the *FEED STORE*
Dairy Queen? That was 16 miles away in another town. Where we went to eat on a date.
21. You see at least 1 friend a week driving a tractor through town.
Uhh Huh.
22. The football coach suggested that you haul hay for the summer to get stronger. Wow I always thought that Coach Tyson was a brilliant man for suggesting that we do that! Who would have known that hauling hay to better your football playing was not a new one!
23. Directions are given using *THE* stoplight as a reference.
Sorry no stop light in my town. We did have STOP signs...that is if they
hadnt been pushed over by the kids with brush guards on their trucks.

24. The city council meets @ the coffee shop.
City council? Coffee shop?
25. Your *LETTER JACKET* was worn after your 19th birthday.
Ya, and for some of us it was worn well into our 20's simply because when you are still in school its a cool the cool thing to wear.
26. You decide to walk somewhere for exercise & 5 people pull over and ask if you need a ride.
Walk for exercise?
27. Your teachers call you by your *OLDER* siblings names.
I am the oldest.

29. The closest *Taco Bell* or *Burger King* is @ least 30 miles away.
Try 60 miles away in Waco, Tx.
30. So is the closest *Shopping Mall*.
Its Waco again.
31. It’s normal to see an old man riding through town on a riding lawn-mower.
No, nobody was rich enough to have a riding lawn mower.
