You know you're in the Midwest when...

In honor of the first opening of a beautifully renovated Church of Scientology in the Midwest, I present the following top ten list:

You know you're in the Midwest when...

10.  You find yourself wearing shorts when the first snow falls.

9.  You brought your heavy jacket to the ball game and you have to use it as a stretcher to help the guys with heat stroke.

8.  People let you cut in line at the grocery store when you only have a few items.

7.  When someone smiles at you as they walk by, you don't check to see if your wallet was stolen.

6.  Everybody you know is anxiously awaiting the release of a hybrid pick-up truck.

5.  The children are tan because they play outside.

4.  You have pet names for your favorite pot holes.

3.  You make fun of people who use a definite article when talking about a highway.

2.  "Morality" is not a bad word.

1.  When you ask for help, you get it.
Thank you to Terri A., Matt D., Kevin F., Joelle H. and Donna W.,  who are traveling to Minnesota today to help me help the staff up there get their church opened.  It'll be a great time! 

More people will be arriving over the next day or so - I'd love to see you up there as well.
