You can't help where you're born, and if you were lucky enough to grow up in the Boston, Massachusetts area like me, you probably know exactly what the following 5 items are or are referring to...

1. YOU KNOW WHAT A BRIGHAM'S FRAPPE IS

Founded in Newton, MA in 1914, ice cream maker Brigham's eventually became a popular franchised restaurant. My mother introduced me to mocha frappes at the age of 10, and I was hooked. The term "frappe" is super local to New England and the rest of the country knows it as a milkshake, although some would say that there is more ice cream in a frappe.

2. YOU KNOW WHAT A BEEF 'THREE WAY' MEANS

Dude. Every Friday night, with the exception of during Lent of course, was roast beef night in my house. These super popular roast beef shops, often paired with fried seafood offerings, are wicked local to Boston's north and south shore. The rest of the country really does not know what they're missing. Thinly sliced and cooked "rare-ish", stacked high between a butter toasted roll, or even better yet, an onion roll, dump some James River BBQ sauce with mayo and cheese and you have your beef "three way".

3. YOU PEED IN THOSE OLD FENWAY TUB URINALS

This is a pee shy person's NIGHTMARE. Before Fenway Park installed new bathrooms, you know, the era preceding "Friendly Fenway", there were these massive tub style trough urinals where 10 men could pee at the same time! I was not a fan, lol.

4. YOU REMEBER WHEN CHARLES STUART JUMPED OFF THE TOBIN BRIDGE

Not to be morbid, but I distinctly remember this story. Stuart, who was guilty of killing his pregnant wife in 1989, died by suicide after he lept off Boston's Tobin Bridge in January of 1990. Stuart's brother, Matthew, who helped try to cover up the murder was sent to prison. He died in 2011.

5. YOU KNOW WHO 'MATTY IN THE MORNING' IS

Matt Siegel, Kiss 108's morning mainstay is still at it. Siegel who is 71, has been hosting his popular radio show "Matty In The Morning" since 1981. I remember waking up to his show circa '92 and realizing I wanted to do morning radio for a living. Thanks, Matty!

READ ON: See the States Where People Live the Longest

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
