Some southern-isms to share....
GRITS has 2 meanings 1. Girls Raised in the South (thats me)
2. That wonderful breakfast food made from corn ~ I like mine smooth & creamy with salt & butter
Coke ~ any soft drink in the south is a coke, not pop or soda. A coke is usually a Coca-Cola.
Y'all ~ singular or plural it means the same "you all"
Fixin to ~ "I'm fixin to go to the grocery store" About to, in a minute I'm going, etc.
Snow ~ the white flakes that fall from the sky...doesn't matter how many. Down here snow is snow. If it covers the ground and coats the roads ~ everything stops. When we say it didn't snow last winter, that means we never saw a flake.
Food ~ illness, surgery, death in the family, promotion, new baby, etc. is celebrated with food. We do it all the time.
Grill ~ cookout, barbeque, whatever you call it. We do it year round...rain, snow, extreme heat ~ we love to cook out.
I am sure I will think of others to share....
But right now, I'm fixin to get off this computer. Bye y'all!
