Southern grit and southern born...we are women of passion here in Dixie. I didn't write this but I sure enhanced it.

Hot & Humid! Hot & Humid! Hot & Humid!

The beach. The rivuh. The crick.

--------
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 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 neigh bor 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!
_____

Put 100 Southerners in a room and half of them will discover they're related, even if only by marriage.
_____

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 tomatoes with eggs, bacon, grits, and coffee are perfectly wonderful; that red eye gravy is also a breakfast food; 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 heart" ... and go your own way.
_____

To those of you who are still a little embarrassed by your Southern-ness: Take two tent revivals 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 are fixin' to have classes on Southernness as a second language!
_____

And for those that are not from the South but have lived here for a long time, all y'all need a sign to hang on y'alls front porch that reads "I ain't from the South, but I got here as fast as I could."


Southern girls know men may come and go, but friends are fahevah!

If you're a Northern transplant, Bless your little heart, fake it. We know you got here as fast as you could.


~Bless your heart!~

From one Southern chic to another, despite my northern episode, I found this pure charm, Susan. I sealed the deal this weekend in those NC mountains I occassionally escape to with a healthy dose of breakfast grits, sweet taters, and fried green tomatoes for suppah with buttermilk pie. Might take me a week to work it off too, but the pace was worth th calories.
Hope that sweet Southern world is treating you well, my friend.
Love,
Taylor

Have I seen this a fore? I'm from "up Nort" but I know all this stuff from the movies or sumpthin.

My favorite Southern movies are Easy Rider and Deliverence. Kinda like Fargo describes my neck o' the woods.

So cool. I lived in the South for seven years and I could tell you how I use to get y'all going. Being from Jersey originally they could always tell where I came from. I use to joke with many when they would comment about my accent. "The only difference between a Southern accent and my Jersey one is that y'all just say things "a----wh-o-l-e l-o-t s-l-o-w-e-r" Great words, thanks for sharing them this morning. I'll go get my can of orange cola and rest a bit. Lady J
