RTT: I'm back ya'll?

randomtuesday

Its Tuesday ya'll and you know what that means. I’m going to be random again. Keely's the master of ceremonies for this little shindig so when you get done here check out her and all the others that play along. Oh, and when I say check out I don't mean "check out". There will be no ogling of bloggers. Unless they want to be. Ask nicely.

I’m going to be using Texas idioms today because I wanna. So ya’ll will be reading words like ya’ll and shindig. I’ll drop the “g’s” and combine words like "don’t you" into “don’tcha”. Just an FYI. I don’t rightly know whether I’ll get all of them right but I only have my learning permit. It will be fun to see how the spell check will act (I really just want to screw with it). Those of you Texans out there I’ll say sorry now.

In two weeks I’ve got right us’ ta being asked if I want help with getting my groceries to the car. Havin’ the door opened for me. Hearin’ please and thank you. Havin’ drivers use their turn signals as they were intended to be used. They’re just so dangum polite. It’s just plain embarrassin’ for the people of the western states; is just what it is.

Big house + no furniture = a pain in my butt. The floor is hard and I can't seemta make a decision.

I had the cable hooked up on Saturday and the refrigerator installed on Sunday. Guess which one I was most happy to see. No, not the refrigerator. The cable. Red wine does not need to be refrigerated.

I best be leavin’ for work. Though I can pretty much come and go as I want I don’t want to take advantage.

Love,
M

  1. I come from Texas and this made me laugh in different parts of Texas everyone talks so different. Glad you had the wine.

  2. You'll know you've REALLY gotten the lingo down when you start telling people that you're "fixin'" to do something and when someone tells you they'd like a Coke, you tell them their choices are root beer, Dr. Pepper and Sprite.

  3. That was hard to translate and I grew up in FL. I guess FL isn't really the south since it's a melting pot of northerners with a few natives mixed in.

    Nice to have you back, I missed you! How's the new job going? Red wine is gross. Sorry, it slipped out.

  6. Well I can see you're getting the local customs down! Maybe in my new unemployed status I can come and help you with that wine- I mean, furniture placement.

  9. I get confused when I go down South and they're polite. I'm not use to it. Northerners are a mean, rude bunch.

  11. I understood everything perfectly! I am amazed that you are shocked with all the politeness of the southerners. I guess since we live in it we just take it for granted. Get a recliner and you will be right at home!

  13. I must be part Texan because I understood that all perfectly. But I regularly say 'ya'll' even though I have no right to do so whatsoever.

    Also, I'm okay with being "checked out". Just sayin'.

  14. We talk like that in Oklahoma & Kansas too! I'd only correct one thing...rather than dangum, it's "dadgum"!

  15. Welcome to the South, Michele! Sounds as if you're settling in just fine. And I loved the Greece story. Thanks so much for sharing.

  17. I'm a transplant from NY to SC and I'm loving the y'all. I sore I'd never say it but I lied to myself because not only do I say it, I type in in conversations.
