You know you’re from Colorado if…
YOUR CAR IS A SUBARU.
I get it, Subaru is practically the state car of Colorado. But that is exactly my point, because outside of the Colorful State, no one drives a Subaru. Okay, okay that might not be true. But there are fewer people driving Subaru in most other states. There are so many Subarus here, if you happen to be one of the two people who own a Tesla around the Springs, you look awfully showy climbing into your space machine. Because Colorado people buy Subarus.
YOU WEAR BIRKENSTOCKS ON A DATE NIGHT.
YOU WEAR ATHLETIC CLOTHES LIKE REGULAR CLOTHES.
YOU ACTIVELY TRY TO MAKE IT HARDER FOR YOURSELF TO BREATHE.
I’m looking at you, Incline Runners. This higher elevation makes it hard for me to walk up the stairs in my house. True story: I had to get an IV after I moved here (the first time) because I was dehydrated… Gotta drink that water here! But there’s something about you Coloradans that you just have to run up the side of a mountain. In under thirty minutes. Really the only sane thing here is grabbing a brew when you reach the bottom, if you reach the bottom.
