Friends vs Texas Friends

Another charming e-mail...

FRIENDS: Never ask for food.
TEXAS FRIENDS: Always bring food.

FRIENDS: Will say 'hello.'
TEXAS FRIENDS: Will give you a big hug and a kiss.

FRIENDS: Call your parents Mr. and Mrs.
TEXAS FRIENDS: Call your parents Mom and Dad

FRIENDS: Have never seen you cry.
TEXAS FRIENDS: Cry with you.

FRIENDS: Will eat at your dinner table and leave.
TEXAS FRIENDS: Will spend hours there talking, laughing, playing dominoes or cards, and just being together.

FRIENDS: Know a few things about you.
TEXAS FRIENDS: Could write a book with direct quotes from you.

FRIENDS: Will leave you behind if that's what the crowd is doing.
TEXAS FRIENDS: Will kick the whole crowd's backsides that left you.

FRIENDS: Would knock on your door.
TEXAS FRIENDS: Walk right in and say 'I'm home!'

FRIENDS: Will visit you in the hospital when you're sick.
TEXAS FRIENDS: Will cut your grass and clean your house then come spend the night with you in the hospital and cook for you when you come home.

FRIENDS: Have you on speed dial.
TEXAS FRIENDS: Have your number memorized.

FRIENDS: Are for a while.
TEXAS FRIENDS: Are for life.

The only difference for me...NO WAY would my dad permit me to call friends' parents anything but Mr. and Mrs.!! Even if they asked me to.
