Last week, we shared our ten favorite item from the You know you're from Colorado When Tumblr. When we shared the post on the Westword Facebook page, we asked for your favorite ways to complete this sentence -- and you definitely came through. In fact, many of your answers were arguably better than those in the first batch. Look below to check out our choices for the cream of the crop. Number 10: Alone in a crowd "You're surrounded by 70 percent of people that didn't grow up here." Number 9: Formal wear "Dressing up is putting on the expensive fleece."

Number 7: A wheel dilemma "When you see a Subaru with a mountain bike on top that's more expensive than the Subaru."

Number 3: The pause that refreshes "You say, 'I'll have a pop' instead of soda or Coke." Continue for more of our Facebook friend answers to "You know you're from Colorado when...." Number 2: Workout on aisle seven "You wear your sports gear to the grocery store. Preferably Patagonia ;)." Number 1: 365 degrees of gorgeous "When you can't resist thinking, 'Damn, that's beautiful' in every direction you look. #milehightillIdie."

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
