You Might Be a Southerner...

{Thanks for following, Sarah!}

if waving to strangers isn't considered creepy.

if "regular tea" means tea with sugar, dammit.

if you can catch a crawdad {or know what a crawdad is, for that matter}.

if you have seen someone refill their own drink at a sit-down restaurant, then proceed to fill other peoples' glasses on their way to put the pitcher back.

if nothing seems odd about the following sentence: "We might could do it, if we had the right tools."

if you never age out of saying "sir" and "ma'am."

if, for heaven's sake, you know what chiggers, ticks, and poison ivy look like.

if having your mom insulted is a {MUCH} bigger offense than having your bike stolen.

if someone not with your group has ever said, "Bless you!" after you've sneezed.

if the door for the next person coming isn't a magnificent show of manners--it is the ONLY thing to do.


P.S. Happy birthday to my bestishsometimesmaybe friend Ellie! XD


  1. I like those :)

    Out of curiosity do you speak with a southern accent? Who do you sound most closely like that we would know?

  2. Awww why don't I live in the South? It seems so hospitable! :)

  3. I really like your blog...Sarah recommended me to you and I'm happy she did!!

  4. Before I moved here to Alaska I spent time in Louisiana, North Carolina, and Texas, so I found this absolutely hilarious!! I loved it! It's so funny that some of my habits I picked up (or my accent for that matter) from living in the south for a little over six years bewilders some people up here!

    This post seriously made me smile (:
