“I have way more children then you do.”  Quote by a cute little four yr old about this crazy game called life.


You Know You’re From Philadelphia When…

You punctuate every sentence with, “You know” at least twice.

You want olive oil, not mayonnaise on your “hoagie”.

You hate the Redskins

You realize that your favorite dessert is “wooder ice”.

You find yourself using “yo” and “youse guys” when talking long-distance to family members.

You know how to spell Schuylkill.

You pronounce ACME “ACK-A-ME”.

You think that $2,500 a year for insurance on a 1977 Toyota Corolla is a bargain.

You find youself at a nice restaurant thinking “I wonder if they have cheese steaks?”

You sleep soundly through gunfire and ambulance sirens.

You visit New York and are impressed by how clean it is.

You can’t eat french fries without Cheese Whiz.

You call sprinkles on top of your ice cream cone “jimmies”.

You snub a cheese steak that isn’t on an Amoroso roll.

Your parents, brothers, sisters, aunts and uncles all live on the same block.

You can’t imagine lunch without a Tastycake.

You can make a cheese steak and you’ve never been taught

You’ve never been to the Liberty Bell, or the only time you were there was on a class trip in third grade.

You know what and where “Boathouse Row” is

You will buy a pretzel from anyone, anywhere without even thinking of where it was – or where his hands have been.

You don’t know what a sub is, but you think they are trying to describe an imitation HOAGIE.

You aren’t a bandwagon Sixers fan?you loved them when they sucked, and before they had A.I.

You go to The Gallery or South Street in the summer time just to chill.

You have the pizza place on speed dial.

    Breakfast was so good!  I’m still kinda full.  Right now I’m sittin’ at Mom’s while Marlin is making some oil drain carts down at work.  This morning Mom & I went to Flower Warehouse.  I thought they might have curtains, but I didn’t see anything that I really liked.  I did get a couple candles.  BTW, I like your song.  Hope you have a great weekend.  Luv
