(4). You used to drag "main."

(5). You said the 'f' word and your parents knew within the hour.

(6). You schedule parties around the schedule of different police officers, since you know which ones would bust you and which ones wouldn't---same goes with the game warden.

(7). You ever went cow-tipping or snipe hunting.

(8). School gets canceled for state sporting events.

(9). You could never buy cigarettes because all the store clerks knew how old you were (and if you were old enough they'd tell your parents anyhow).

(11). It was cool to date someone from the neighboring town.

(12). You had senior skip day.

(13). The whole school went to the same party after graduation.

(14). You don't give directions by street names or house numbers, but you give directions by references (turn by Nelson's house, go two blocks past Andersons', and it's four houses left of the track field).

(15). You are under the impression that all golf courses have only 9 holes.

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

About 95% of those are true about the town I grew up in! We had a designated day for everyone to drive their tractors or ride their horses to school!!

LOL that sounds just like Slocum, TX. Which is where I lived for my jr high years until I moved to the big city of Nacogdoches (which half of the rules still apply to).
