Friday Flair: You Might Be a Redneck If...

Ok, here it is:
I sometimes use 3 large velcro rollers for the top of my hair to give it some lift. Now, they stay in my hair various amounts of time, but if I'm not going anywhere, they work best if I can leave them in for about 2 hours while my hair dries on it's own.

I know.

How many times have I just plain forgotten they were in there? No, I'm not talking about people who come to the door... I mean, you get what you get if you ring my doorbell unannounced.

It's when I forget they're there and go to the grocery store that it gets redneck.
.

My dad would be SO embarrassed.

oops.
yeah, I know it's not Friday yet. I could unpublish it, and then republish it tomorrow... but being so proper just seems wrong for a post about being so redneck.

The "nice tooth" one totally reminds me of something I was going to blog about but then immediately forgot about (until now).

On the trip home from vacation we stopped at Burger King and there was a woman I had to make a conscious effort not to stare at incredulously. She had a full set of upper teeth and exactly ONE bottom tooth. Pretty sure she qualifies as a redneck.

My family had one of these moments last week: we were at a steak-house and my mom was giving all of her kids thank-you presents...guns! :) I suppose that makes us red-necks.

Hey, you talking 'bout my family?

We wave our freak flags with pride!

We know we're rednecks...haven't you scene that post?

Okay I thought that was funny but my husband didn't. Does that make me or him a redneck?

And I thought I had lost a day when it said Friday Flair. Don't scare me like that!

LOL

I'm just so glad to see Friday Flair--EVEN IF IT'S THURSDAY.

as a junior in hs, these were getting quite popular.

my girlfriend's parents owned a series of contiguously placed plots of land ideal for the placing of modular housing units. (aka trailer park)

therefore, my favorite you might be a redneck was "if directions to your house contain the phrase 'turn off the paved road'"

i said it every time i went to her house (practically every night), and for some reason, it seemed to annoy her :-)

in other news, i took a picture once while driving through my SIL neighborhood. i don't have time to find it now, but remind me sometime to post the picture of the "double wide"

I'm just glad I'm not the only one who thinks it's Friday - hee hee!

Well if nothing else at least those rollers are comfy unlike the spiky ones my mother tortured me with as a child!

I'm still giggling over the mullet one. Good stuff!

Those are too funny!! I used to love reading Jeff Foxworthy's "You Might Be a Redneck if..."
And just to make you feel better about your curlers... the other day we decided to go out to dinner. I got all dressed up, hair done and headed out the door. Got to the restaurant only to realize that I hadn't put a bra on...

My husband grew up in East Tennessee. Lots of rednecks.

You know you're a redneck if you're standing by the lake with a fishing pole, with your shirt off, holding a cigarette and scratchin' yer belly.

Believe you me, I saw a lot of that out there. Lots of bellies.

I bet you make anyone's day who sees you. Seriously that is quite awesome.

Back when I was in community college and doing theater, I'd sometimes have to go to my PM classes in big pink sponge curlers because my call would be right after class let out, you're not alone. :)

I love the tooth one. Very nice.

I still like my "if you can get a drink out of your fridge on the front porch" REDNECK!!

When you are from north Idaho like I am, you might be immediately thought of as a redneck. I am feverishly and constantly trying to keep my kids from acting like rednecks...it's not easy. But not everyone here is a redneck. We have a lot of yuppies here (how long has it been since you've heard THAT term? Probably at least late 2005...)
:~D
