10 Things Oklahomans Do That Seem Insane To Everyone Else
Apparently, we do things here in Oklahoma that may seem a bit taboo to the rest of the country. Who knew running outside to see a tornado is considered insane? If you’re from Oklahoma then you know that is normal, but apparently, we’re a little crazy to everyone else. Here are some things Oklahomans do that seem normal to us, but insane to people not from around here.
1. We take leisurely drives in the middle of nowhere and enjoy it.
For some reason, we find it peaceful looking at wide open spaces and enjoy time away from any civilization.
2. We have a healthy obsession with college football.
You'll see our college football teams plastered on everything around the state. And we love it that way!
3. And BIG trucks and ATVs.
If you don't own a truck in Oklahoma, then you know someone who does.
4. We run outside to see if there's a tornado instead of taking shelter.
You'll even see people sitting outside in their lawn chairs looking to spot a twister.
5. We'll stop on the side of the road just to admire an old (or new) piece of farm equipment.
We find machinery beautiful around here. And if you catch the owner around, we'll stand around talking for hours.
6. We become instant friends when we hear someone yell "Boomer" and we respond with "Sooner."
Of course, this only applies to those who wear crimson and cream.
7. We can't help but yell, "Go Pokes" at the sight of this guy.
That's only if you're an orange and black fan.
8. We have extra refrigerators solely dedicated just to our beer.
It's considered a sacred spot in the garage.
9. And freezers just for our deer meat.
And we'll proudly show you our stash when you come visit.
10. We start up conversations with strangers just to be friendly.
We can't help it, we're just that friendly.
