Of all the states in the USA, Texas stakes a claim for having the strongest identity. Conservative, tough, gun-loving and God-fearing, you pretty much know what to expect when a Texan walks into the room. But times they are-a-changin’ and a new, young, vibrant Texas is emerging in metropolises across the state, leading to a generational divide that throws up some interesting contrasts.
Take this wholesome story of newfound friendship for example. Tumblr user indiedrone uploaded a pic of himself, gently mocking his mom for her ‘crucifix cluster,’ apparently a fairly common sight in Texan homes where one symbol portraying a mans’ horrific death is never enough.
Indiedrone’s post quickly got some attention, as other Texan kids could relate. Fellow Tumblr user fullblownpanic shared her own mom’s cross conglomeration, cheekily pulling the same pose.
Someone quipped that the pair would make a good couple, having experienced the same crazy-crucifix-mom upbringing. However, it turns out that they have more in common than anyone could’ve imagined, despite coupling being out of the question.
