1.) The feeling of complete terror when you’re on I-10 heading to Mobile and traffic stops.
2.) Telling tourists it’s GULF Shores, not GOLF or GUF Shores. (While we’re at it, it’s not pronounced Mo-bull it’s Mo-beel)
3.) Avoiding the bayway between 7-9 am, 4-6 pm, and any Friday before a holiday weekend.
4.) Knowing exactly how many seconds you have to listen to static in the tunnel. (And holding your breath in the tunnel)
5.) Going to the Shrimp festival, Jubilee festival, Strawberry Festival, and Arts and Crafts Festival (and eating way too much).
6.) Waking up in the middle of the night to go check for a Jubilee.
7.) Explaining to tourists from up north what real humidity is.
8.) Knowing not to speed through Robertsdale on Hwy 59, ever.
9.) Explaining to tourists (Especially those from New Orleans) that Mardi Gras was truly originated in Mobile. (And what Joe Cain Day is)
10.) Going to the Grand Hotel for holiday meals. (And feeding the ducks)
11.) Rooting for your high school football team well after graduation. (Even though they’ll never be as good as they were when you were there)
12.) The feeling of pure joy when you leave Mr Gene’s Beans with your coffee and ice cream at the Lighting of the Christmas Trees. (Yes we eat ice cream year around)
