the smock's score? "85% (Dixie). Do you still use Confederate money?" i blame this score on my mother's yankee kin.

take the quiz here.


86% (Dixie). Do you still use Confederate money?

Ha! I blame my 14% on the Yankee I married!

"Heavily western Great Lakes"... just as I suspected. Since I was born less than a mile from Lake Michigan and have never lived more than about 5 miles west of the shoreline. (I'm sure without TV I'd be even more Yankee...) And, of course, bubbler is the give away that I'm a true Wisconsin native. :)

"right on the Mason-Dixon line." I was raised in WA, living in mom is from the ozarks, so I figure that's how I know anything southern. But what on earth is a drive through liquor store???

Not surprising since I was born on just north of the river separating the North & South (Ohio):

44% (Yankee). Barely in the Yankee category.

45% (Yankee). Barely in the Yankee category.
Makes sense, since I've been transplanted in the Ohio Valley for 12 years now. I'm sure it was the question about carbonated beverages that pushed me over the edge. I used to call it "soda" but now it's "pop". I can't help it!

Oh, and a drive-through liquor store is called a "pony keg" around these parts. We usually buy pop and candy, but I think you can purchase beer. Not sure about any other kinds of liquor.

Right on the Mason-Dixon line, which is less than a mile north of my office here in extreme northern New Mexico.

Drive-through liquor stores are a great thing, but here they only sell liquor (beer, wine and spirits) and cigarettes. Would be handy if they sold other items too.

On the west coast these types of stores are literally drive-throughs where there's a roof overhead and merchandise on either side. Here it's like a pickup window at a burger joint.
