What?! How did I miss this thread for so long?

I'm Allyson and I live in the suburbs of Houston :) No horses of my own, but I half-lease a four year old miniature horse mare who is my world. I work on a farm that is 35-40 acres and has 42 horses on it though. I absolutely love it!

Used to be - I don't know about now - but the place that Texans went to ski was Colorado. Coloradans had a bumper sticker: If God Wanted Texans To Ski, He'd Have Made Bull**** White.

Liking snow doesn't make a person a Yankee, by the way. I could live in New England my whole life and not wind up a Yankee, same way I could live in France and not wind up French. Liking snow makes you "cold blooded". Liking heat makes you "hot blooded". Liking the weather in Houston makes you a "tropical lizard."

And, all the time, I'm meeting people (in the company of my spouse) and they say "Where are you from?" and he tells them "Massachusetts", which is a BLACK LIE for BOTH of us. HE is from New York City, the Bronx, in particular. So when he rolls that rubbish out, I cut in with "We LIVE in Massachusetts, but he's from New York, and I'm from Texas." Who the heck gets confused between where you live right now, and where you are from?!?!

Also, I should add, since this thread is populated with my Homies...I've had to live outside the state for the last 10 years - moved away in August 2002 - and I can basically get away with any weird behavior I want, just because I'm from Texas. Not that I want to get away with a bunch of anti-social behavior. It's anything from speeding the car to wearing cowboy boots with jeans ON THE STREET because NO ONE here does stuff like that, let alone wearing them with a cowboy HAT.

The depressing thing is when I start talking about home, like about the giant flying cockroaches, or about having to be careful when you're tubing down the river because the water moccasins will drop out of a tree at you, to having to check your boots/shoes/bathtub/sink for scorpions because they come in for the water, to Houston being the same size as Massachusetts, to having to watch out for mesquite thorns in the grass because they'll puncture the sole on a pair of Tevas and go right into your foot...these Yankees get this superior smirk on their faces and say "Oh, Tall Texas Tales, huh?" And I'm thinking...No, just the stone cold hard truth.

AND...I swear, some of the stuff I've experienced...I was at a dinner party several years ago, and we were talking about some person who wasn't there who hadn't been doing all that well lately, and I observed that this person looked like they'd been rode hard and put away wet.

And EVERY OTHER PERSON at that party glared at me with naked revulsion in their eyes, so I said "What?" and that's when I found out that they have that saying in Wisconsin BUT - I swear it - that "rode hard/put away wet" isn't about poorly treating your HORSES...it's about...ugh....WOMEN. Then it was *my* turn to be all revolted, because I'm thinking "what kind of people even HAVE a saying like that?"

I feel like I've been exiled to live among savages for the last decade...

I sometimes wonder if I decided to waltz down Main Street butt-nekkied except for a pair of cowboy boots and a pair of underoos on my head, people would just say "Oh, well...she's from *Texas* you know..."

I always get laughed at in other states because of my 'souther twang' which I don't realize that I even have. I sound perfectly normal, my friends! I don't even say ain't ;)

I'm always offered the spiciest of spicy foods too, and mexican food because apparently that's all we eat. And I'm supposed to be fluent in spanish because I live down here I guess?

Oh how I love being a Texan..

O God, don't get me started on mexican food...I refuse to eat it in any state that isn't actually TOUCHING Mexico, and I am jonesing so bad for good fajitas (you would not believe what is served in New England when you order fajitas). And salsa. And queso. And enchiladas. And...and...and...
