More On Southern Women
Only a Southern girl knows the difference between a hissie fit and a conniption fit, and that you don't "HAVE" them, you "PITCH" them.
Only a Southern girl knows how many fish, collard greens, turnip greens, peas, beans, etc., make up "a mess."
Only a Southern girl can show or point out to you the general direction of "yonder."
Only a Southern girl 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 Southern girls know exactly when "by and by" is. They might not use the term, but they know the concept well.
Only a Southern girl 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 Southern girls 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 Southern girl both knows and understands the difference between a redneck, a good ol' boy, and po' white trash.
No true Southern girl would ever assume that the car with the flashing turn signal is actually going to make a turn.
A Southern girl knows that "fixin" can be used as a noun , a verb or an adverb.
Only Southern women make friends while standing in lines, ... and when we're "in line," we talk to everybody!

Every Southern woman 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 Southern girl!
Only true Southern girls 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 Southern girl 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!
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'all's 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!
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.
God Bless YouBe courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.

I'm guilty of so many of those it's not even funny, with the notable exception of some of the words, the most notable exception being 'y'all." For some reason, that one never managed to creep into my vocabulary.\\` ` ` ` < ` )___/\
