1. You desperately search for common ground with any Canadian you meet.
“You love hockey? I love hockey!”
2. You can’t understand anything being discussed on The Current’s Twitter account.
What is Hippo Campus? How can I live stream Rock the Garden?
3. You attempt to grill your own Jucy Lucy and fail miserably.
Can I get the 5-8 Club’s emergency hotline, please?
4. You refuse to accept that you’ve started sayings things like “bag” “boat” and “about” in a normal non-Minnesotan accent.
And “Oh yah, sure, you betcha” has progressively become “Oh yes, absolutely, no problem.”
