Suthinah's apparently know that you "fix" dinner, not "make" it.

(and endless debate between me, from NJ, and DH, from KY)

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...

Slang dialect in the part of the West Midlands I come from for 'you all' is 'yo'all' - not which isn't a far cry from ya'll!!!! And words like grass & glass are pronounced with a hard 'a' much like the US way and not 'grarse' & 'glarse'

Incorrect. Y'all is singular. All y'all is plural. All y'all's is plural possessive

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.

1. Religion: Don't forget Nascar! Football and Nascar are the 2 largest religions after Babdiss.

2. A true Southern Lady will not "make a scene" in public.

3. Hissy Fit, Conniption and the ultimate Wall Eyed Fit.

4. Peach or Blackberry Cobbler will cure anything.

5. Southern Parents will tell their children, "That's what will happen if ya don't drink yo' SWEET milk!".

6. A Southerner also knows that "Bless yo' Heart!" is a true wish for a blessing, a way to tell someone they're ******ed, and a curse all at once sometimes.

7. Dinner is eaten at noon, Supper is at 5:30 p.m.

8. Weds. Night is a Holy Day of Obligation, you MUST go to church as well as on Sunday.

9. Every Southern girl knows exactly what "Ladies don't.........." means.

In my house growing up it was one word damyankee! While we are on that subject it was never the Civil War, it was the War Between the States. Except for the Charleston, S.C. Side of my family where it was referred to as The War of Northern Aggression!
