Last night we all had marvelous fun with the Friday Fill-In, and many of the participants were Southern girls by birth, marriage or heart. And it was hilarious the things we all had in common. So here's my tribute to those us who are from the South, or those who wish they were. :)
You might be a Southern gal if......
You just can't imagine green beans without butter or bacon grease.
You've seen everything from a turkey to Twinkie deep fried.
Steel Magnolias or Fried Green Tomatoes was almost mandatory viewing in your house.
"Youse guys" cracks you up, but there ain't nothin' wrong with "y'all".
You have laughed hysterically when asked what grits are.
You have made (or seen it made) corn bread in a cast iron skillet.
In fact, you've considered living off of cornbread & beans.
You thought the waiter was kidding when he asked you "sweetened or un".
You think people who wear pantyhose every day are a little touched by the sun.
And lastly you might be Southern if you have ever used any of the following phrases: "fine as a frog hair", "happy as a tick on a fat dog", "don't pee on my leg and tell me it's rainin'", "two bricks shy of a load", "busier than a long tailed cat in a room full of rockin' chairs", and "that dog don't hunt".
