If you consider it a sport to gather your food by drilling through 18 inches of ice and sitting there all day hoping that the food will swim by, you might live in Minnesota.It's just something to do while you sit in an icehouse drinking schnapps.
If your local Dairy Queen is closed from November through March, you might live in Minnesota.Get this: It is 10 degrees outside right now, and on Thursday the closest DQ to my house will be interviewing for summer help. All of the local DQs -- three within a fifteen minute drive -- will open Feb. 27. I can't hardly wait.
If you have worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you might live in Minnesota.Very common around gyms.
If your town has an equal number of bars and churches, you might live in Minnesota.Does that count 3.2 bars or not? We have 33 bars in this city of about 60,000 that serve "strong beer" (don't get me started.) We probably have more than that in churches, but not by much.
