You know you’re an archaeologist if …

Shellie, Micah, and Justin came up with a list of funnies. Enjoy!

You know you’re an archaeologist if:

  1. You look for diagnostics in your cornflakes.
  2. You tell your tailor that you would like a new suit in 10YR 4/5.
  3. After finishing a piece of chicken you look for a pink tag and a brown paper bag.
  4. You are just dying to clean the balks at every road construction site you pass on the highway.
  5. When you hear someone say, “My life is in ruins,” you suddenly feel happy and want to share your archaeological testimony.
  6. You separate your garden into squares and then dig one locus at a time.
  7. You rename your diary “My Daily Summary.”
  8. You keep screaming “yella, yella!” to the kids.
  9. You absolutely hate falafels.
  10. Every time someone asks you a question you want to say, “I don’t know, we’ll have to dig a little deeper to find out.”

Best of luck to you all! Farewell! Next year in Jordan!


  1. hahahaha
    you know it 🙂
    miss you guys-you’ve done a lot!

  2. Just got home from Jordan and yesterday when Roy and I were walking on our country dirt road here in Michigan, I saw artifacts everwhere!!! “coins,” “seals,” “arrowheads.” I thought I was going to go crazy!
