----------

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 Suthun Gentleman, 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 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 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 sweet little 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 little 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!

Yes, Margie. Football has always been King in the South, and it is a religion for many of us Southerners.

Love love this post, Margie!  Hmm, I was unaware that my husband actually has a southern religious affiliation...you can probably guess which one...  :-)  We also have enough RV traffic on the roads during the summer to know that you NEVER trust that a vehicle with its turn signal on is actually going to turn in the forseable future!

Raymond- Indeed. For some it certainly is! I'm a football kinda gal though!

Jerry- Looking back on my life, the day my Dad sat me down and explained the game of football to me was one of the biggest game changers ever for me. I became completely obsessed from that day forward and have been ever since. That's a memory I will cherish forever!

Karen- I made the mistake of thinking a turn signal meant just what it's supposed to ONE time. Ended up in a wreck. Never had made that mistake again : )

Leslie- Funny enough a similar conversation goes for southern universities as it does for church. I attended UGA and not once did I meet someone new with out them asking what sorority I belonged to.

This blast from the past is hilarious especially having lived in Georgia for nearly 20 years.
