We just make 'em up as we go, too. My, my, my. Honey, that fine lookin' man could melt butter just passin' it, even it was in the deep freeze. <....just now.
OK folks, do you know your southern language?
My all time fav that my grandma used to say:
"Lord have mercy"
How are you? I'm fine as frog hair.
Not sure if this is a southern expression, but I had a teacher from the South who would always say "whatever suits your fancy" meaning do whatever the hell you want.
not any southern sayings in my house growing up in Los Angeles, but since Dad was from TX, there was a lot of "yes sir, no sir, yes m'am, no m'am" stated. Just a general politeness u don't see in L.A.
My hubby taught our children to say "yes sir". Most folks seem to think its quaint. I think it's polite and respectful.
If I'm trying to catch someone's attention and I don't know them the first things put of my mouth are sir or ma'am.
I never realized that Yes Sir and No Sir and Yes Ma'am and No Ma'am weren't universally taught in the USA until I moved up here.
they aren't in L.A.
wha happened/ flying highnow, My mom and dad born and
raised in the south (Ark.) I was born in the south but raised
in Calif. A story my father told , when he moved to Calif. his
first job he was told by his co-workers, stop saying no sir
yes m,am or no m,am. You are not in the south anymore, just
say yes and no. You wont be hung from A tree for saying yes.
So what happen, when I entered the military I had to learn
to say yes sir, no sir and dance A jig if told to do so.
It,s A culture thing.

we cut lights on and off
