Introduction from your Neighbour to the North
Sunday, October 26, 2008
For all my American readers who have been burning with curiosity about what life is like up here in Canada (yeah, right), I have some information for you!
Here's Jeff Foxworthy (who does not live in Canada) on life in Canada. And he's amazingly right on:
If someone in a Home Depot store
Offers you assistance and they don't work there,
You may live in Canada . (I don't know why Americans think Canadians are so polite. I find most of us obnoxious!)
If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time,
You may live in Canada . (this is my youngest daughter's winter uniform).
If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation
With someone who dialed a wrong number,
You may live in Canada .
If you measure distance in hours,
You may live in Canada . (Oh, yeah baby. We live 2 hours from Toronto and 2 and a half from Ottawa).
If you know several people
Who have hit a deer more than once,
You may live in Canada . (Typical dinner conversation: The first time I hit a deer....)
If you have switched from 'heat' to 'A/C'
In the same day and back again,
You may live in Canada . (did that today)
If you can drive 90 km/hr through 2 feet of snow
During a raging blizzard without flinching,
You may live in Canada . (I've never mastered this. But my husband has).
If you carry jumpers in your car
And your wife knows how to use them,
You may live in Canada . (I do!)
If you design your kid's Halloween costume
To fit over a snowsuit,
You may live in Canada . (Did this every year when the kids were young!)
If the speed limit on the highway is 80 km --
You're going 90 and everybody is passing you,
You may live in Canada . (Who's he kidding? The speed limit is 100 and I go 125).
If you know all 4 seasons:
Almost winter, winter, still winter,
And road construction,
You may live in Canada . (Oh, yeah).
If you have more miles
On your snow blower than your car,
You may live in Canada . (Hint: we call them kilometres).
If you find 2 degrees 'a little chilly',
You may live in Canada . (It's not too bad).
If you actually understand these jokes,
you must be Canadian!
