SOUTHERN SAYINGS

“A SOUTHERNER TALKS MUSIC.”   -MARK TWAIN

I will continue to add to this list. I won’t tell you where I heard anything because it just wouldn’t be polite. Y’all come back now, ya hear?

“Bless her heart, she can’t help being ugly, but she could’ve stayed home.”

“That boy ain’t right.”

“Her eyes look like two holes burned in a blanket.”

“Just because their kids were born here don’t make them Southern. My dog sleeps in the garage. It don’t make him a truck.”

“You’re not really married ’till you send out that last thank you note.”

“Are you trying to grow potatoes behind those ears?”

“I’ve gotta see a man about a dog.” ( have to use the restroom)

“Are you catching flies?” (Don’t walk around with your mouth open.)

“When God handed out brains, he was standing behind the door.”

“Were you raised in a barn?” (referring to manners)

“If you swallow those seeds, watermelons will grow out your ears.”

“You could serve TEA off that butt!”

“He’s old as dirt.”

“Don’t bite your tongue. You’ll poison yourself.”

“No hill for a stepper.”

“You are working my last nerve.”

“I don’t have a dog in that hunt.”

“I have a bone to pick with you.”

“Gooder than grits.”

“Fuller than two ticks on a hound dog.”

“I feel like I’ve been shot at and missed and pooped on and and hit.”

“All hat, no cattle.”

“She told him how the cow ate the cabbage.”

“Everything he’s got is on the showroom floor.”

“You don’t put your money in the front window.”

“She’s a pistol!”

“He’s a hoot!”

DREADFUL DENTAL DRAMA

I wasn’t going to write about this, but then I got outed by a friend in the comments.

Brief time line:

Crown came off molar

Palm Sunday- Tooth cracked-lengthwise.

Gets inflamed

Thursday- Dentist says tooth cannot be saved. Go to oral surgeon to get his opinion.

Good Friday- Oral surgery

Blur of pain, grossness, soft foods.

Wednesday- Solid food. Big mistake.

Thursday- Queasy, bruised and jaw feels fractured.

Tomorrow- Follow-up with surgeon.

So, Easter dinner was canceled at my house and baskets (which  I enjoy) did not get filled. It was all a bit depressing and I am looking forward to Mother’s Day and having my family around me again. I was very grateful that the surgeon was able to fit me in before the holiday weekend.

WHAT ARE YOU ADDICTED TO?

Perfume.

Purses.

Definitely Coke.

Or maybe Mexican Coke.

WHAT COULD YOU BE ADDICTED TO?

If I weren’t careful-decongestant. Or HULU.

Chocolate goes without saying…
