PostSubject: THINGS I HAVE LEARNED FROM THE SOUTH...   Tue Jul 05, 2011 1:48 pm

Being born and raised in California, I have to say, it didn't take long to learn these things......


THINGS I HAVE LEARNED FROM THE SOUTH...

A possum is a flat animal that sleeps in the middle of the road.

There are 5,000 types of snakes and 4,998 of them live in the South.

There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 of them live in the South, plus a couple no one's seen before.

If it grows, it'll stick ya. If it crawls, it'll bite cha.

Onced and Twiced are words.

It is not a shopping cart-- it's a buggy!

Jawl-P? means 'Did y'all go to the bathroom?'

People actually grow,eat and like okra. (and okry)

Fixinto is one word. It means I'm about to do that.

There is no such thing as dinner. There is only lunch and then there is supper.

Iced tea is appropriate for all meals beginning with breakfast and you start drinking it when you're two. We do like a little tea with our sugar. It is referred to as the Wine of the South.

Backwards and forwards means I know everything about you.

The word jeet is actually a phrase meaning, 'Did you eat?'

You don't have to wear a watch, because it doesn't matter what time it is: you work until you're done or until it's too dark to see.

You don't PUSH buttons, you MASH 'em.

Y'all is singular; All y'all is plural.

You measure distance in minutes.

You switch from heat to A/C in the same day.

All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit, vegetable, grain, insect, or animal.

You know what a DAWG is.

You carry jumper cables in your car - for your OWN car.

You only own five spices: salt, pepper, mustard, Tabasco and ketchup.

The local papers cover national and international news on one page, but require 6 pages for local high school sports and motor sports, and gossip.

You think that the first day of deer season is a national holiday. HeeHee

You find 100 degrees Fahrenheit 'a bit warm'.

You know what a hissy fit is.

Going to Wal-Mart is a favorite pastime known as goin Wal-Martin' or off to Wally World.

You describe the first cool snap (below 70 degrees) as good beef stew or chili weather.

Fried catfish is the other white meat.

We don't need no daggone Driver's Ed. If your mama says you can drive, you can drive!!!
