FRIDAY FAVORITES



Today only really needs one Favorite!  My favorite thing about it is that I AM PROUD TO BE A CANADIAN!

Now the best thing about being Canadian is being surrounded by a bunch of other equally fabulous Canadians.  People who are proud to live in this great country!  Seeing as how it is CANADA DAY today I thought I'd share some funny things that apply to most Canadians. 

You know your Canadian if....

1) Driving in the winter is better than summer because the "pot-holes" are filled in with snow
2) You have "Canadian Tire" Money stashed somewhere.
3) We have ALL frozen our tongues to something metal and lived to tell about it
4) You've gone trick-or-treating in a blizzard
5) Effective "mosquito repellent" is a shotgun
6) Roll up the rim is the most exciting time of year
7)You know 4 seasons: Winter, Still Winter, almost Winter and Construction
8)You perk-up when you hear the theme from "Hockey Night in Canada"
9)You know what a toque is and you own one and often wear one
10)You understand the sentence, "Could you please pass me a serviette, I just spilled my bowl of poutine"!

Now for a little something fun.  For those of you actually from Canada, you will appreciate this.  For those of you who aren't from here, you might be a little confused, but with a little bit of though you might figure out some of these blunders.  You might even find humor in some of these questions.
