You are so Mobile if…
if Chico plays in your yard for Yardi Gras
if you say “WSMFP”
Mardi Gras is a religion
when you ask an adult “what school did you go to?” and you are referring to high school rather than college.
you have seen the leprechaun
you kayak 5 miles into the Delta and spend the night
you win a Nappie
