I read this list a long time ago and I thought I would give it a pulse and raise it from the dead for all to read.

You Know Your From San Antonio when...

  • You lost your virginity at mission drive-in
  • You know exactly how to get to the "Ghost Tracks" from anywhere in town.
  • You think "pro-choice" means flour or corn tortillas.
  • You've never been to the Alamo.
  • You think a health drink is a Margarita without salt.
  • You think being able to read the Taco Cabana menu makes you bilingual.
  • You used to live in a neighborhood you wouldn't even drive through now.
  • There has been a road crew on your street since before the Alamodome was built.
  • You remember when Crossroads Mall used to be called Wonderland.
  • You've been to Midget Mansion.
  • You know all about the "Dancing Diablo" and the "Donkey Lady" bridge.
  • You know that Wheatley and Brackenridge is the same school.

  • You do your grocery shopping at a flea market.
  • You think local politicians are crooks, but you still do not vote.

  • A formal occasion is getting a glass with your longneck.
  • You believe Tacos, barbecue, tequilla, and beer are the four basic food groups.
  • You rented Pulp Fiction to escape the everyday violence of the city.
  • You think wearing bows in your hair will get you a husband.
  • Your White mother learned how to make Tamales & Menudo from your neighbors.

  • You had breakfast tacos at Taco Cabana on Christmas morning.
  • You remember the Joske's Christmas display.
  • You remember when JC Penney's had a restaurant.
  • You remember hamburgers from Whopper Burger.
