Favorite email of the day...

This is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about Chicago ...........

If your local Dairy Queen is closed from September through May, you live in Chicago .

If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you live in Chicago .

If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you live in Chicago .

If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you live in Chicago .

If 'Vacation' means going anywhere south of I-80 for the weekend, you live in Chicago .

If you measure distance in hours, you live in Chicago .

If you have switched from 'heat' to 'A/C' in the same day and back again, you live in Chicago .

If you can drive (75) mph through (2) feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, you live in Chicago .

If you carry jumper cables in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you live in Chicago .

If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you live in Chicago .

If the speed limit on the highway is (55) mph -- you're going (80) and everybody is passing you, you live in Chicago .

If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow, you live in 2 Chicago .

If you know all (4) seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction, you live in Chicago .

If you have more miles on your snow blower than your car, you live in Chicago .

If you find (10) degrees 'a little chilly', you live in Chicago .

If you actually understand these jokes, and forward them to all your Chicago friends & others, you live, or have lived, in Chicago.

All the commentators kept saying during the inauguration, "Michelle Obama must be cold! Oh, look, she's getting back in the car! I know she's freezing!"

I knew better. The Obamas are from Chicago. And thanks to ChiTown Girl's posts, I know Chicago.

Michelle was definitely NOT cold. This post is further proof that she was merely "a little chilly".

"If you have switched from 'heat' to 'A/C' in the same day and back again, you live in Chicago" This could be said for FL today...seriously. :)
