7. It was cool to date someone from the neighboring town.

8. The whole school went to the same party after graduation.

9. You don't give directions by street names but by references (turn by Nelson's house, go two blocks east of Anderson's, and it's four houses left of the track field).

10. Your car stays filthy because of the dirt roads, and you will never own a dark vehicle for this reason.

11. The town next to you is considered "trashy" or "snooty," but is actually just like your town.

12. You refer to anyone with a house newer than 1950 as the "rich people." And people who have lived in the town less than 50 years as "newcomers."

19. The city council meets at the coffee shop.

20. You have ever ridden your horse or taken your dog to school on a daily basis.

21. Weekend excitement involves a trip to the five and dime.

22. You decide to walk somewhere and five neighbors or friends pull over and ask if you need a ride.

25. The closest McDonald's is 45 miles away.

26. So is the closest mall.

27. It is normal to see one of your neighbors riding through town on a riding lawn mower.
