I know some of you are from the south.Pleae don't hate me for posting this. Putting on my riot gear to be ready for the fall out....

Southernness
 
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, ... as in: "Going to town, be back directly."
_____
 
Even Southern babies know that "Gimme some sugar" is not a request for the white, granular 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" 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 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 Southernness 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 y'alls front porch that reads "I ain't from the South, but I got here as fast as I could."
