We'll leave the light on for you

The NY times has proclaimed that moving inland, away from our coastlines is a new trend that's being driven by affordable housing in the heartland. Their poster child for the new inland meccas is none other than Oklahoma City!

The article actually cites 6 cases, which is a huge data set for a Times trends piece.

So come all ye coastals, cramped, beat down and hassled,
come ye, o come ye to Ok-la-home-ee.

If you want to fit in, here's a few things to remember.

If you want to tell someone they're a big ass*&(* just say "Bless your heart"

If you want to ask someone to lunch, just say "jeet yet?"

If you want to announce that you are about to engage in activity X,
just say "I'm fixin' to X" (eg. I'm fixin' to fix dinner)

Please be aware that there will be lengthy prayers before any and all athletic events.

Please be aware that noodling is a real thing.

Please be aware that you are now living in an irony-free zone.

Other than that you should be good to go!

Do the kids there still respect the college dean, or does that only apply to Muskogee?
