You know you're in color guard when…

When without thinking you know "one more time!" is just a lie to make you work harder

It's a fact that winter season is the best

That rifle is for spinning and not killing

That it is not impossible to have 20 girls fit into one bathroom

That 'rain or shine' really means rain or shine

Sun screen is your friend

That only perfect practice, makes perfect

You will get hit

Bruises are a part of life

Make sure you put sun screen on your face before putting on sun glasses (raccoon eyes… lol…)

All of your insides jokes are from guard

You have stormed a shopping mall food court with the ENTIRE guard

Your guard has a theme song(s) every year

Suddenly you're in love with glittered

It's not weird to have a saber lying around your house

And win XD.

You remember everyone's names on your guard, but forget your sibling's middle name

You've nodded to most of these things and are now nodding and grinning stupidly at your computer

You are now looking around to see if anyone noticed
