    Humidity

    The crick
    Southern women know everybody 's first name:
    Honey
    Darlin'
    Shugah
    Southern women know the movies that speak to their hearts:
    Fried Green Tomatoes
    Driving Miss Daisy
    Steel Magnolias
    Gone With The Wind
    Southern women know their religions:
    Baptist
    Methodist
    Football
    Southern women know their cities dripping with Southern charm:
    Chawl'stn
    S'vanah
    Foat Wuth
    N'awlins
    Addlanna
    Southern women know their elegant gentlemen:
    Men in uniform
    Men in tuxedos
    Rhett Butler
    Southern girls know their prime real estate:
    The Mall
    The Country Club
    The Beauty Salon
    Southern girls know the 3 deadly sins:
    Having bad hair and nails
    Having bad manners
    Cooking bad food
    More Suthen-ism's:
    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!

    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 Southerness: 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!

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

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

    As a relative newcomer to the south, I must say it is a more genteel society overall - I love it... hope some day I will be considered a real southerner :)

    I married a Southern boy and between him and his parents I've slowly come to understand alot of what they say! On my first trip we were in a fast food place and the man ahead of me at the soft drink machine was having trouble. He turned to me and said something like "it's foamin all over the flow." I said pardon me and he repeated it. I looked at my fiance and he said "it's foaming all over the floor." The family still teases me about that one!

    Born in Addlanna, and "raised" in South GA. I cut my teeth on all these rules and sayings! They are still part of me despite the fact that I left GA 55 years ago to follow a Naval Officer around the world! Of course we've been in TN for a lot of years, and that can be considered Southern!

    My ex was a North Jersey boy through and through. We had lived in south FL but there wasn't much difference.
    When he first went to Atlanta to look around the guy told him. Look for the T'ire. He drove all over Altanta looking for a big tire. What the guy had said was Look for the Tower! And he got stuck on 285 going around and around LOL
    My ex also freaked because when we first moved to Peachtree City the way down 74 from the interstate had cows along the side of the road. LOL He considered himself WAY in the country.
    I didn't mind the country it was Peachtree City that drove me nuts. To Stepford wife

    As a true southern belle I can testify that all of the above is true HOWEVER not enough was said about football. Now football is not a sport down south, its more of a religion. From pee-wee football to High school ball on Friday nights and up through the big league... yep! College football (Roll Tide!) we take it dead serious!

    Being a transplant some 23 yrs ago, I'd have to say that is right on the money! And yes, I too needed a translator when I first arrived! My ex husband was from the South, and his younger brother really had a strong drawl, his favorite saying 'can you carry me to the stow'? What?! He meant, can I have a ride to the store. My ex had to translate that one....LOL!
    Blessings,
    MaryAnna

    Me too. On my first trip to southern Alabama to visit the family several years ago, we went through a fast food drive thru. I was driving and gave the order. After the third time of being asked to repeat my order, they said just come on up to the window. I've learned how to talk since then. :mrgreen:
