You know you're a die hard (no, not the battery) when....

You go to the big car show when it's raining and you stand there and eat a soggy corn dog because you can only get a real corn dog at the fairgrounds.




What die hard things have you done? Oh wait. I'm hoping I didn't word that wrong.....

I read online about people doing die-hard things and think 'I remember when I used to think about doing things like that'

Now it's die-hard when I want to do something enough that I drag my kids along and Make It Work

I'm still a Cleveland Browns/Cavs/Indians fan...that's either die-hard, or just stoopid.

I used to do a lot of die-hard things, but I didn't even consider them die-hard at the time. But, now that I met my wife, staying in a non-four-star hotel is pretty darn die-hard.

I used to cycle in any weather, especially rain-turning-to-snow, for hours at a time. Never thought anything of it.

I also go to work when my back is in so much pain that I moan and scream, randomly, throughout the day. Wait, that isn't die-hard, that's just plain dumb!

I used to go to the movie theater to get a bucket of "movie popcorn" to bring home to watch movies at home.

Now I have a movie popcorn maker, coconut oil and fake butter at home!

Die hard is kissing your cat on his pink nose, getting bit hard and deep in the lip by his sharpened fang, wiping off the blood while feeling the lip swell and then kissing him again because you love him and totally forgive him.











evil little spawn of the devil.

Die Hard: oh let's see. Riding bareback in 25 oF weather in snow because I need to get the practice in so my horse-riding legs won't atrophy over the winter.

No... Hardcore is running with scissors. Die hard is still doing it after you fell and stabbed yourself. Repeatedly.
