Things that are backwards in Florida:
- FOOD: You can purchase turkey tail, cows feet, burnt cows feet (more expensive than regular!), goat testicles, ox tails, and something called "beef pizzle." Oh no. And don't forget the enormous jars of pickled hot sausage links.
- HAIR: many of the boys stick their hair out and up all over, with sideburns like a single blade of grass curving gently down their faces, and they shave their widows peaks for a straight and clean hairline, although generally not often enough. The other generally accepted hairstyle for a young man (particularly if he has curly hair) is to grow it all out fairly long, then tie it back about three quarters of the way up the head, so that it pulls back into an enormous puff on top of their heads. Norman Hubbard, it would seem, has incredible foresight into the world of style.
- CARS: Some men are so crazy about their trucks that they get pictures of their trucks painted right on the back of the truck! We've got a pitcture of that one somewhere.
- WINTER ACTIVITIES: They make snow angels out of sand. Oh, wait, that's just my Mapache.
