I visited my parents in the cities this weekend, and I was talking about the fact that I was ready for Vikings football. My Dad says, “You’re always ready for Vikings football.” True enough. You know you’re from Minnesota when you look forward to the start of a new Vikings season, even though you know it’s gonna end badly. That’s mine. What’s yours?

  • CINDY:  You plan all year long for the State Fair.
  • JIM:  Somebody brings molded green Jello to the party.
  • KATIE:  Meat raffles are a legitimate form of entertainment.
  • TANYA:  You hear the temperature, but know to wait for the windchill.
  • SARA:  You keep trying to text ‘hot dish,’ but your phone keeps changing it to ‘hot dog.’
  • DAN:  You think Iowans have a southern accent.
  • TIMMY:  You only own three ‘spices,’ salt, pepper, and ketchup.
  • LYNN:  It’s pop. not soda.
  • SHERI:  You design your Halloween costumes to fit over snowmobile suits.
  • RICH:  You have ten favorite recipes for venison.
  • LINDA:  Your husband thinks sexy lingerie is a flannel nightgown with only eight buttons.
  • ROBBIE:  You owe more money on your snowmobile than your car.
