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!

  1. I've got a hankrin to. means I'm thinking about it beyond just a passing thought, but up and including putting it in the budget.
