What Makes Florida So Florida?
Michelle Lyn King

I think I’m going to have to check this book out. I grew up n Miami, which means that just crossing a stop light could be the equivalent of crossing a poverty line. And the Moscovi ducks, that you can’t touch, my dad accidentally hit one on the way to work and I found out 10 yrs later. (The fine is like $250) I knew I was out of Miami when I saw the Cracker Barrel; it was also a reminder that I livee in the South. The memories, the cringing when you hear somebody do something stupid and you pray s/he isn’t from Florida, the traffic when it rains…and surviving Andrew and seeing how it practically wiped out Town & Country! Then there’s the Gators​/Seminole thing, hanging chads, elian Gonzalez, Calle ocho, WEAM, the list is endless!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
