How to tell if you are a REAL NEW ENGLANDER??

I got this as a forward the other day and usually I think most forwards are dumb and don't send them along but this one made us laugh out loud!

Ok everytime we go to Home Depot, my boyfriend offers someone help finding stuff. He *was* going to wear shorts today, and was driving 70 in the snow! His ex-BIL hit 2 deer and wrecked BOTH of his vehicles in one week. Oh, and we were saying how it was nice outside today in spite of the rain and snow, and it was only 34 degrees. Oh, we are totally from Maine.
