10 Undying Habits That Prove You Can Never Take Ohio Out Of The Ohioan
Once an Ohioan, always an Ohioan.
No matter where you end up in life, the habits you learned from living in the Buckeye State die hard—or they don’t die at all. From the way you pronounce words to how you take a photo, here are 10 undying habits that prove you can never really take Ohio out of the Ohioan.
1. You'll forever use the term "pop" instead of "soda."
Seriously. "Soda?" Who do you think you are?
2. Every time, without fail, you rush to buy milk and bread when the forecast calls for any amount of snow whatsoever.
It doesn't matter where in the world you are. Old habits die hard.
3. Your hatred of all things Michigan.
This one runs the deepest of all. And it doesn't matter how illogical it may seem.
4. You refer to stores such as Meijer, Kroger and JC Penney in possessive form.
It’s "Meijer’s," "Kroger’s" and "JC Penney’s" here and we don’t care if that’s wrong because it just feels right to us.
5. Every once in awhile, you mysteriously pronounce an "r" in words that don’t actually have one.
(In your mind, the word "warsh" is just "wash" with style.)
6. We can never stop doing this:
Hey, if you could spell your state's name with your arms, you'd do it too.
7. You're never impressed by an out of state roller coaster.
Because there’s literally no place in the world better than Cedar Point when it comes to roller coasters.
8. We often randomly yell out "O-H" and fully anticipate an "I-O" reply.
It's just a way of life.
9. If it can be decorated, it's going to be Ohio-themed.
Even after we've moved to another state, we have to fight the urge to decorate with the irreplaceable heart-shaped state.
10. We relentlessly make fun of Ohio while we secretly love it.
Some things really just can't be explained.
