You Might Be From Colorado If _______.

You Might Be from Colorado If
Beano, TSM

I was born and raised in the great state of Colorado. Where we know that April showers bring May blizzards, we give directions as ‘towards’ or ‘away from’ the mountains, we design Halloween costumes around our winter coats, and we know that Casa Bonita does, in fact exist.

We put this on Facebook a while back and have been collecting some of our favorites. Have any other that should be added to the list? Fill in the blank in the comments below.
