Only a Southerner knows the difference between a hissy 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.
_____

No true Southerner would ever assume that the car with the flashing turn signal is actually going to make a turn.

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 Tabasco, and 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 Southernness: 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're fixin' to have classes on Southernness as a second language !
_____

Southern girls know men may come and go, but friends are fah-evah!
_____

There ain't no magazine named "Northern Living" for good reason. There ain't nobody interested in livin' up north, nobody would buy the magazine!

lol! that was pretty interesting. I did have a time when I was putting milk and sugar on my grits. I thought it was cream of wheat until I saw others putting butter on theirs. It was good either way. But you will never get me out of north country permanently. A trip to the south is good but then it is back to the north woods and lakes. I actually enjoy winter! (Having just said that, I am ready for Spring so I can get camping.)

When I moved to north carolina, one of my co-workers told me to quit speaking Northernese. I told her I would quit speaking Northernese when she quit speaking Southernese. Bless her little heart. I also learned that a BBQ is for pulled pork and ribs. A cook out is for hamburgers and hot dogs. Do not invite people to your house for a BBQ and only have hot dogs and hamburgers, there could be a riot.

That should be interesting to watch. In a couple weeks, huh? It could be 90 Degrees or 40 Degrees this time of year. Have a safe trip and wish we were headed to Goshen or you were headed to Nashville. Be good to see ya'all again. Have a safe trip to the Peach State

When grandma needs to go to the store,she will ask Billy Bob to "carry" her there.

When a Southern girl is said to have "Big Hair"'it doesn't mean she has a big head.

It was a great time last year...Army Rangers are 'machines' we have a friend that is competing for the second time....so naturally, we go! Not to mention it is beautiful there this time of year. The BRC starts the 10th of April, we plan to be there the 9th and hang UTC.

We had every intention of making it to the Nashville run, but things came up and we could not adjust.....I notified Kenny about it a couple of months ago, saying we couldn't make it......looks like a blast waiting to happen.

Be great to see you folks again also, maybe some washers? I ain't much of a bean bag tosser

As mentioned before in this thread, My new MIL would call milk "Sweet Milk" when referring to milk other than Buttermilk.

My in laws would call a small amount of water a "Tank" where I would call it a pond.
