"That's so Miami."

It's a phrase you hear everywhere in this town, from exasperated locals and bemused tourists alike. Wearing your bathing suit to Publix? That's so Miami. A $22 cocktail? That's so Miami. Last year the O, Miami Poetry Festival devoted a monthlong competition to verse describing the unique charms of the Magic City.

So by now, you know what's so Miami. The real question is: Who's so Miami?

There's no definitive answer. But the quiz below is as good a place as any to start. Read on to find out exactly how Miami you really are.

1. It's 3 p.m. at the office. What are you doing?
a) Working, duh. I'm not off until 5.
b) Office? I'm a bartender.
c) Delivering coladas I just brewed to my co-workers.

2. It's time to merge onto the highway. You:
a) Slow down, put on your blinker, and wait for someone to let you in.
b) Grip the wheel, veer into the first opening you see, and pray.
c) Speed through the merge lane until it ends, continue driving on the shoulder as you pass the traffic jam, wave at the cop who sees you but does nothing to stop you, cut off an 18-wheeler, and cross three lanes of traffic at once so you can make your left exit.

No, sadly. Is there a diametric opposite to being "305"? That's what I am pretty much.

If one uses the word specially instead of especially that's so Miami. If one's car lease payment is more than their rent payment that's so Miami. Lol. If you've ever slept on a ping pang pong. That's so Miami.

Would you like to know more about Bigfoot and the mafia? If so read my family biography "Surviving Bigfoot and the Dixie Mafia." My true book was written from journals, diaries, and interviews. It is sold out in paperback, however you can read it free online from six stores.
