In Case You Didn't Know

Here is a list of “useful” tidbits people thought necessary to let me in on over the past few weeks when I told them I was moving to Texas:

“It’s hot there.”

“That’s a big state.”

“You’ll be close to Mexico.”

“They have the best barbeque.”

“That’s far away from Ohio.”

"They call it the Lone Star State"

“They have Texan accents.”

“Kelly Clarkson is from Texas.”

“It gets really hot there in the summer.”

“It’s really hot there in the spring.”

“It’s hot there year-round.”

“It’s a dry heat… unless you’re in the southern part of the state. Then it’s not.”

“I think it rains a lot there.”

“There are a lot of Mexicans there.”

"I think the State Flower is a magnolia."

And my favorite:

“The Alamo has no basement.”

(That’s a shout-out from “PeeWee’s Big Adventure.” Rent it.)

  1. When i come to visit, we are so going to the Alamo and asking them if we can see the basement! Wonder how many times that question comes up now...
