    Fill in the blanks please: "You might be a______ if you __________. "
    (Thanks, Wayne Brown!)

    Let's stir up some different areas of our creativity and see what it does to our future writing. Some examples of answers to this "question" (really more like a challenge):

    You might be a redneck if your outhouse has a pay phone.
    You might be a native Minnesotan if you say, "Want to go with?"
    You might be a MinneSOtan if you laughed hilariously throughout most of the movie, "Fargo", ya know.
    You might be a Dr. Who FANATIC who needs treatment if you know what T.A.R.D.I.S. stands for and can name all of the actors who played the Dr. over the years.

    You might be a hubpages contributor if you engrave thumbs up or thumbs down on the bedpost instead of niches.

    You might be an overprotective parent if you refuse to let your 18 year old child attend college/university in another state/country.

      Ha ha! I know these people! Lots of them. Some of the grown-ups need to finally grow-up, methinks.

    You might be a rich Texan if your Cadillac has a gun rack.

    If your primary vehicle has more than three colors, you just might be a hick.

      Oh my goodness! < I > might be a hick (just kidding). My car is ancient (1993) but runs great, 30+mpg, and is only 1 color (not counting needing a carwash).  Thanks for these, Tammy L! I obviously had great fun with them; I'm sure others did, t

    You might be (are) from Southern California if you (annoyingly) add the article "the" before a freeway number. E.g. Traffic's backed up on the 405.

    Obviously I'm from Northern California. Traffic's backed up on 101.

    It's ok, we still love you guys down there! smile

      Glad to hear California's so accepting of verbal annoyances! (And I didn't know S. Cal. added a "the" in front of highway names. Huh. You learn something new every day.) Peace, Joseph Frankina, and thanks for contributing (more! More!). :-)

    You might be a genius if you can understand my writings :-)
    You might be an alien if you can understand women because no one on Earth does.

      You might be challenging us to keep our writing quality up if you write such answers. :-)

      (If you find any aliens (or earthlings) who can understand women, let me know so they can teach me how to understand myself!!)

      Good point, AMAZING THINKER! I'll just hope for the first case and then worry about any language barriers. :-) Thanks for commenting!

    You might be a doofus if you drive while talking or texting on your cellphone.

      Laura Schneiderposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      Definitely! Especially texting! Driving and avoiding other crazies on the road is challenge enough. :-) Thanks, dellea!

    You might be a quilter if you can use your calloused index finger as a pincushion for your quilting needle without any discomfort whatsoever.

    You might be a Pennsylvania Dutch if you say "pop" instead of soda.
    You might be a Kentucky Corn bread lover if you sell it in every town during the holidays!
