  • You say ‘inna’ after almost every sentence
  • You know Johnny Barnes
  • You know the difference between Hamilton and Hamilton Parish
  • You have an “Ace Boy” or “Ace Gurl”
  • Your house has a name
  • 30 mins in a car is a stretch!
  • You’ve only ever bought gas from Shell or Esso
  • You know the significance of the colours, “Blue and Blue” and “Red and Blue”
  • You use the car horn to say hello
  • You know 90% of the country’s population

  • Dark and stormy isn’t just a term to describe the weather
  • You don’t swim until 24th May (at the earliest)
  • You can identify a tourist without even talking to them
  • You can wear pink shorts with knee socks and still feel manly
  • You know that “up the country” is west and “down the country” is east
  • You’ve lived through at least one hurricane and therefore the names, Felix, Emily, Fabian and Florence all have a deeper meaning for you
  • You’ve risked your life climbing a weak tree that’s in someone else’s yard JUST to reach that juicy loquat
  • If you know why Seagull Racing does not involve birds, or racing, you must be a Bermudian
