The South

Post by LovelyLadyLux » Sun Apr 08, 2018 10:02 pm

This is what a Southern friend likes about the South:
There is no magazine named
"Northern Living" for good reason. There ain't nobody interested in
moving up there, so nobody would buy the magazine!

Southerners know their summer
weather report:
Humidity
Humidity
Humidity
-------------------------
Southerners know their vacation spots:
The beach
The rivuh
The crick
--------
Southerners know everybody's first name:
Honey
Darlin'
Shugah
--------
Southerners know the movies that speak to their hearts:
Fried Green Tomatoes
Driving Miss Daisy
Steel Magnolias
Gone With The Wind
-----------
Southerners know their religions:
Bapdiss
Methdiss
Football
--------------
Southerners know their cities dripping with Southern charm:
Chawl'stn
S'vanah
Foat Wuth
N'awlins
Addlanna
---------------
Southerners know their elegant gentlemen:
Men in uniform
Men in tuxedos
Rhett Butler
-----------------

Southern girls know the 3 deadly sins:
Having bad hair and nails
Having bad manners
Cooking bad food
------
Only a Southerner knows the difference between a hissie fit and a
conniption fit, and that you don't "HAVE" them, you "PITCH" them
___
Only a Southerner knows how many fish, collard greens, turnip greens,
peas, beans, etc., make up "a mess."
__
Only a Southerner can show or point out to you the general direction
of "yonder."
___
Only a Southerner knows exactly how long "directly" is, as in: "Going
to town, be back directly."
__
Even Southern babies know that "Gimme some sugar" is not a request for
the white, granular, sweet substance that sits in a pretty little bowl
in the middle of the table.
__
All Southerners know exactly when "by and by" is. They might not use
the term, but they know the concept well.
__
Only a Southerner knows instinctively that the best gesture of solace
for a neighbor who's got trouble is a plate of hot fried chicken and a
big bowl of cold potato salad. If the neighbor's trouble is a real
crisis, they also know to add a large banana puddin'!
__
Only Southerners grow up knowing the difference between "right near"
and "a right far piece." They also know that"just down the road" can
be 1 mile or 20.
___
Only a Southerner both knows and understands the difference between a
redneck, a good ol' boy, and po' white trash.
__
No true Southerner would ever assume that the car with the flashing
turn signal is actually going to make a turn.
__
A Southerner knows that "fixin" can be used as a noun, a verb, or an adverb.
__
Only Southerners make friends while standing in lines, and when we're
"in line,"we talk to everybody!
___
In the South, “y'all” is singular, "all y'all” is plural.
___
Southerners know grits come from corn and how to eat them.
__
Every Southerner knows that tomatoes with eggs, bacon, grits, and
coffee are perfectly wonderful; that red eye gravy is also a breakfast
food; that scrambled eggs just ain’t right without Hot sauce, and that
fried green tomatoes are not a breakfast food.
__
When you hear someone say, "Well, I caught myself lookin'," you know
you are in the presence of a genuine Southerner!
__
Only true Southerners say "sweet tea" and "sweet milk." Sweet tea
indicates the need for sugar and lots of it -- we do not like our tea
unsweetened. "Sweet milk" means you don't want buttermilk.
__
And a true Southerner knows you don't scream obscenities at little old
ladies who drive 30 MPH on the freeway. You just say, “Bless her sweet
little heart".
____
To those of you who are still a little embarrassed by your
Southernness: Take two sips of moonshine and a dose of sausage gravy
and call me in the morning. Bless your heart!
_____
And to those of you who are still having a hard time understanding all
this Southern stuff....bless your hearts, I hear they’re fixin' to
have classes on Southernness as a second language!
_____
Southern girls know men may come and go, but friends are fah-evah !

Now Shugah, send this to someone who was raised in the South or wish
they had a ‘been! If you're a Northern transplant, bless your heart,
fake it. We know you got here as fast as you could.
