You know you live in a small town when...

You know what 4-H is.

You said a bad word and your parents know within the hour.

You have been cow-tipping or snipe hunting.

School gets canceled for state events.

You have taken a trailer or dog to school.

Your teachers call you by your older siblings names.

It is cool to date someone from the neighboring town.

You can't help but date a friend's ex-girlfriend.

Football coaches suggest that you haul hay for the summer to get stronger.

Senior skip day.

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

You can name everyone in your graduating class.

The whole school went to the same party after graduation.

You wear your letter jacket after your 19th birthday.

You drag "main."

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

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

It is normal to see an old man riding through town on a riding lawnmower.

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

You don't give directions by street names or directions by references (turn by Nelson's house, go two blocks east Anderson's, and it's four houses left of the track field).

The country club golf course has only 9 holes.

Getting paid minimum wage is considered a raise.

You think the people in the city dress funny, then you pick-up on the trend two years later.

Anyone you want can be found at either the hardware store or the feed store.

The city council meets at the coffee shop.

Even the ugly people enter beauty pageants.

You can charge at all the local stores.

The closest McDonald's is 45 miles away.

So is the closest mall.

Weekend excitement involves a trip to a Wal-Mart.
