Myths of Florida...

Dorothy from England asked us to dispel the myths of our various locations on the SHS board. Well, here is one...

It's always sunny in Florida
Because of the enormous amounts of rainfall here, I find it quite amusing that the state motto is "The Sunshine State." In fact, we have a Tropical Storm off our coast as I write this.LOL

Now for a truly horrific sight. Look away if you don't have a strong stomach.LOL

Everyone in Florida has a golden brown tan

If I were any whiter, I'd fade into the wall color. Yes, I do spend time outside. No, it doesn't help. Especially when it's raining.lolol

HA, scary picture!{g}

And Britain has the rep of being rainy. We've had a drought this spring!

TOO funny that you don't have a tan and you live in FL! Do you use a lot of sunscreen or do you just not tan?

Lisa in Jax said...

LOL. No, I just don't tan. I do wear sunscreen so I don't burn, but after 7 years in Miami the only difference in my skin was, you could tell where my socks were.LOL

Stephanie said...

I'm the same way, Lisa. We can glow in the dark together!

I thought of posting myths on my blog, but I can't seem to come up with anything. Everything that I thought of Ohio turned out to be true (except it's more humid here some days than back home in GA!) I break a myth... Myth is that everyone in Ohio is an OSU fan. We'll, technically I'm the only one that I know of that isn't, but it still counts as one person! lol

Lisa in Jax said...


I'm glad I'm not the only glow in the dark person out there.LOL

Jodi said...

I haven't taken up the blog challenge because I couldn't think of anything either. I could probably come up with 2 or 3, I will have to think further on this.

LOL about your no tan.
