For those of you who don't know, I'm a very proud Texan. On this myTake I would be explaining some of the things out-of-staters don't understand about being a Texan.
"I'm a Texan first, American second, and it's not Tex-Mex if it's not from Texas!"
1. Texas- it could be our own country
2. Don't Mess with Texas
WARNING: THIS IS NOT A DRILL. We, Texans, take our state pride seriously and won't take your smack talk; just try it if you dare.
3. No, we don't ride horses to school...
or have to wear a cowboy hat to live here. Yes, you will probably have no trouble finding a cowboy, but that does not mean everyone in Texas is one.
4. Football is NOT a sport... it's a LIFESTYLE!
Football is a huge part of the Texan culture. The Dallas Cowboys and the Houston Texans are a big deal here, and of course the biggest rivals in my opinion.
High school football is even crazier. We have the peprallys, and the homecoming mums- every girl in a Texan high school wants to have the biggest and prettiest mum in the entire campus. The bigger, the better.
5. Texas Weather
Texas weather is so bipolar! Rain one day, freezing the day after and melting the next.
Dont' get me wrong Texans are big supporters of second amendment, but not everyone here walks around with a gun in a holster.
7. If it's not from Texas, It's not Tex-Mex
8. Texas Barbecue
You don't know what a barbecue is until you have a Texan BBQ!
9. Not all Tacos are created equal
There's no need to deny it, nothing beats a good fajita or barbacoa street taco!
10. Holiday season also mean tamale season.
11. Every Texan knows who Selena is.
12. Y'all and Fixin' to
We have our own weird vocabulary. In Texas, when you’re getting ready to do something, you’re fixin’ to do it; it's called the State Verb of Texas.
13. We have Whataburger
