13 Things That Only a True Coloradoan Would Understand

Do the words Casa Bonita give you indigestion? Does the acronym CSAP make you want to play hooky? What about the name Dealin’ Doug (you just pictured him flying through the air with his Superman cape and gaudy rings, didn’t you)? If you answered “yes” to any of these, you are most definitely a Coloradoan and will fully appreciate this list of words and terms that you’ll only hear in the Centennial State.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

And last (but certainly not least):

12.) Dealin’ Doug – When it comes to buying cars, nobody beats a Dealin’ Doug deal, nobody (but on the off chance that someone does, his grandson will give you a car). Coloradoans also know they have a friend in the diamond business with Tom Shane, that Big Mike Naughton is Ford, and that Frank Azar is the strong arm.

13.) UNC – Anyone who thinks that UNC stands for the University of North Carolina (and not the University of Northern Colorado) can go eat a Rocky Mountain Oyster.

I have a feeling I’m forgetting some important words and terms so tell me, what did I miss? What are your favorite Colorado words and terms?
