Top 20 Signs that You are from the Old Line State

By Alpert Schreyer on April 29, 2014

Maryland Personal InjuryAt Alpert Schreyer, our legal team is proud to be a part of Maryland, with its rich national history and diverse natural wonders. Sure, our state may have a bit of an identity crisis, being situated just between the north and the south, but Maryland isn’t known as “America in Miniature” for nothing. From football to crab cakes, to rural farmland and bustling cities, it’s all in Maryland.

Whether you’re a Marylander, born and bred, or relocated from another part of the world, if you call the Old Line State home, you’ll recognize these top 20 signs that you are from Maryland.

  • You can get into a serious debate about Old Bay seasoning vs. J.O. Spice as the best seasoning for all crab and seafood dishes.
  • You call turtles “terrapins.”
  • You’ve enjoyed every type of crab recipe in existence.
  • Going out of state several times a week is no big deal.
  • You know and love “Natty Boh.”
  • “Hon” and “Ya’ll” are used or overheard in conversations on a daily basis.
  • Getting away with an hour commute is a good day.
  • You have pronounced “Maryland” as “Marilyn.”
  • You know what stuffed ham is and how to make it.
  • You know at least 10 people that own boats.
  • You don’t get confused at traffic circles.
  • You know there’s more to Baltimore than what you’ve seen on the TV series “The Wire.”
  • Spring means cherry blossoms, civil war reenactments, and boat shows.
  • You participated in 4-H as a kid.
  • Summers mean lightning bugs, sitting out on the stoop, and family vacations in Ocean City or Rehobooth.
  • You have a particular soft spot for director John Waters.
  • You learned how to play Lacrosse before any other sport.
  • The Maryland state flag is irrefutably the best state flag.
  • Any mention of The Beltway makes you shudder.
  • You regard the county fair as a big event.
