You know you’ve lived Southeast for a while if . . .

2- you pull your rain pants out of your bag half way through a walk home and put them on in the middle of the sidewalk.

3- you’ve lived and worked in a building in which mold was recently discovered.

4- you’re embarrassed to be wearing hiking boots instead of XtraTufs.

5- you bought something at the White E (thrift shop), wore it a couple of times, re-donated it to the White E, and saw it back on the rack during your next shopping trip.

6- you’ve walked to the airport to catch a flight, even if it’s at 5 a.m.

7- you talk about sunny days like long-lost friends.

8- you’ve been given time off work to watch the herring fishery.

9- you feel guilty sleeping past 8 a.m. on a sunny Saturday or Sunday.

10- a ten minute car ride feels long.

11- a trip to the grocery store feels strange when you don’t run into someone you know.

12- you start seeing fishing vessels named after women you know in town and wonder if their husband is the captain.

13- you know where the best puddles in town are.

14- your tastes are way too sophisticated to eat pink salmon.

15- you’ve accidently picked up the wrong car waiting for you at the airport.
