"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

"How long must I suffer so?"

Spencer says that phrase I used as the title at least once every time we're out and about driving around. I laugh every time. People here in Utah are crazy drivers (no offense to any Utahns who read my blog because I know it's not all of you). We are astonished and frustrated on a daily basis at the things we see on the roads here.

Don't believe me? Read this article. It made my day and made me laugh so hard.Though the one thing they left out is what we call the "utah road block". In traffic, there will be a car traveling painfully slow in front of you, and another car traveling the same slow speed in the next lane over, hindering you from passing.

That is all.

If one has driven in Utah does that effectively transform one into a Utah driver?

No, it does not. I have proudly retained my excellent driving skills that you taught me. :)

Actually, the slow speed in both lanes is probably a subcategory of the formation flyer...

Oh boy. Don't get me started on Utah drivers.
