More Suthen-ism's:
Contributed by Hunka of Backdraft Smokers. (Oh my goodness; have I just let a cat outta th' bag?)

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; in, "Goin' to town, be back d'rectly."

Even Southern babies know that "Gimme some sugar" is not a request for
the white, granulated 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 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 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 Southerner!

Only true Southerners say "sweet tea," "sweet milk," and "light bread".
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 "Light bread" is white bread.

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 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 Southernese 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 your front porch that reads
"I ain't from the South, but I got here as fast as I could."

Now...... Shugah, send this page to someone who was raised in the South, or wish they had been!
