5. sometimes you feel that now you are 'Just Having Fun'

6. every Gerrer chusid gets surreptitious looks, 'maybe he is the heiliger Guard'...

7. when you meet someone new you tell them "hi and welcome, you should be getting the official welcome package soon..."

8. passing roadkill is a meaningful experience

9. if someone says the Bardichever lived 200 years ago, you say 'nuh uh, he lives in Kentucky and drives a big truck and sells ice cream

10. you are at a bris and you hear the baby is named 'Dov' and you go over to the baal simcha and say that is a beautiful name, he asks "why so?" and you say ummmm, well you see, it's a long story, not for now and change the subject

11. you go in to meet an adam gadol and he asks you how things are going, you say "Baruch HaTatty"

12. you are at the grocery and you stop at the 7up and start grinning
