When I use the colloquial expression, "this here," does it irritate you?
My mother talked - and others down here still do - that way.
She worked like a dog to see to it that her 12 children received an education. We did.
Mother deceased in 2005. One of my sisters and I like to use that expression as a bittersweet reminder of her and our victory over poverty and despair.
However, when I use it on here, it rankles a prominent poster.
If others feel that way, please let me know.
I will discontinue it forthwith!
