Hey! I’m glad you’re here! This post is part of a 31 Day writing challenge hosted by The Nester. During the month of October, I’m writing on Southern A Way of Life. I will be back to my ‘regular’ posts in November. Consider pushing that follow button to the right for all my latest posts. Thanks y’all!
Southerners have a unique way of expressing themselves. They have developed a saying for almost any situation. And, quite possibly, they make them up if there isn’t one to fit the circumstances. The culture is rich in story telling and all Southerners love a good story which is why so many colorful sayings exist. We tend to talk with metaphors and similes. Why say it straightforward, when to say it metaphorically brings more depth and understanding?
Over the next couple of days, I’ll be sharing some of the more mainstream Southern sayings. Doodlebug and I address the word,’fixin‘ along with some others today. In fact, we about laughed ourselves silly re-watching it. Enjoy!
