You Might Be From A Small Town IN IOWA

You can name everyone you graduated with.

You know what 4-H is.

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

Your idea of a FUN weekend was riding around parking lots because that was where EVERYBODY went.

Your idea of an EXCITING weekend was watching a fight in the parking lot.

You swore at someone and your parents knew within the hour.

You ever went cow-tipping or snipe hunting.

School gets canceled for city, county, or state events.

You were ever in the Homecoming parade.

You have ever gone home for Homecoming.

Everyone thought it was really cool to date someone from the
neighboring town.

You had senior skip day.

The whole school went to the same party after graduation.

You don't give directions by street names, but something more like,
"Turn right by Nelson'* house, go two blocks east past Anderson'*, and it'* four houses left of the track field."

The country club golf course had only 9 holes. (Or there wasn't even one.)

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

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

The people in the city dress funny, then your town picks up on the
trend a few years later.

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

Anyone you want can be found at either the Dairy Queen or the Feed Store.

You see at least one friend a week driving a tractor through town.

The football coach suggested that you haul hay for the summer to get stronger.

Directions are given using "the" stoplight as a reference.

The city council meets at the coffee shop.

Your "letter jacket" was worn after your 19th birthday.

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

Your teachers call you by your older siblings' names.

Your teachers remember when they taught your parents.

The closest Taco Bell or Burger King is at least 30 miles away.
So is the closest shopping mall.

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.
Hey now!! That list is way too close to an exact description of the town I grew up in!!!

YOU KNOW YOU LIVE IN A SMALL TOWN WHEN...



* The "road hog" in front of you on Main Street is a farmer'* combine.

* The local phone book has only one yellow page.

* Third Street is on the edge of town.

* You leave your jacket on the back of the chair in the cafe, and when you go back the next day, it'* still there, on the same chair.

* You don't signal turns because everyone knows where you're going, anyway.

* No social events can be scheduled when the school gym floor is being varnished.

* You call a wrong number and they supply you with the correct one.

* Everyone knows all the news before it'* published; they just read the hometown paper to see whether the publisher got it right.

* The city limits signs are both on the same post!

* The City jail is called amoeba, because it only has one cell.

* The McDonalds only has one Golden Arch.

* The 7-11 is a 3 1/2 - 5 1/2.

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

* The phone book has only one page.

* There'* nothing doing every minute.

* The ZIP code is a fraction.

* Second Street is in the next town over.

* There'* no place to go that you shouldn't.

* A "Night on the Town" takes only 11 minutes.

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

* The New Year'* baby was born in October.

You know what scares me, all of the above somewhat describe Elberton.
