    You are so from Pensacola if...
    - know that a Blue Angel is a pilot, not a heavenly being choking on a chicken bone.

    ~ know that the best collard greens on earth can be found at Hopkins

    ~ recognize only two seasons: hunting and fishing.

    ~ don't even give a screaming roadside preacher a head turn.

    ~ knew Trader Jon.

    ~ accept that you are the only people in the country that toss mullet, much less eat them.

    ~ support Frank Patti unconditionally.

    ~ know which bathroom to go into at McGuire's Irish Pub.

    ~ pour your margarita out on the boardwalk to avoid Pensacola Christian College students.

    ~ know that when traveling on I-110 and you get static over the radio, the "Hot Doughnuts Now" light is on at Krispy Kreme.

    ~ know these street names in order and know they are actually the same road:
    Saufley Field Road, Michigan Avenue, Beverly Parkway, Brent Lane, Bayou Boulevard, and Perry
    Avenue, and don't forget Mobile Highway, Cervantes Street, Scenic Highway, Highway 90. Added
    bonus if you can explain it to a visitor or tourist!

    ~ eat fried mullet.

    ~ know J's bakery is the only bakery in town.

    ~ cried when you learned that J's bakery was closing and you celebrated upon its reopening.

    ~ can't stay away from the fried bacon, eggs, grits and black coffee at the Coffee Cup.

    ~ know Jerry's Drive-In is actually a walk-in, and they have the best cheeseburgers, fried gizzards, shrimp salad, fried mullet, and cold beer in town.

    ~ judge all Nassau grits by those at the Coffee Cup.

    ~ get hamburgers to go from the Blue Dot.

    ~ kissed the moose.

    ~ know the Oyster Bar is closed on Tuesdays.

    ~ start most of your directions by saying "turn left at Jerry's Drive-In".

    ~ must drive on at least three roads undergoing construction wherever you go.

    ~ call a drive across Davis Highway a road trip.

    ~ still call a certain intersection "The Circle".

    ~ still call the corner of Garden and Alcaniz "The Sheridan".

    ~ believe everyone should pull over for funeral processions.

    - know that when arriving in Gulf Breeze from Pensacola Bay Bridge you immediately do the posted 35-mph speed limit and honor that speed limit through Gulf Breeze proper.

    ~ have gotten a speeding ticket in Gulf Breeze.

    ~ go to the beach over the Navarre bridge, instead of the Gulf Breeze bridge to save 50 cents in tolls.

    ~ know what "Drink or Drown Night" is. It's the night you have the best chance to get a DUI.

    ~ know that Fairfield Drive is really Pottery Plant Road.

    ~ prefer county commission or school board meetings to WWF Smackdown because there's more action.

    ~ subscribe to the News Journal only to keep up with the latest on the Escambia County School Board.

    ~ explain to visitors that it is not the harbor they smell but the Main Street sewage treatment plant.

    ~ know Connor Cagle.

    ~ would never drive to the beach to the Blue Angels show, preferring to go by boat instead.

    ~ arrange your social calendar around Blue Angels weekend.

    ~ think the four seasons are "almost summer, summer, still summer and Christmas."

    ~ know Roy Jones has a chicken house.

    ~ call Scenic Highway "The Bluffs".

    I'm sorry your tax dollars are going to be wasted. I see this guy every once in awhile that tried to kill himself. No longer has a jaw or nose. Believe he has two tubes protruding from appropriate places. But it's his eyes that tell the story, for he can no longer talk.
