Hissy Fit vs Conniption Fit

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 can’t be sweet all the time.  We try our best to be warm, friendly and charming but sometimes, things just go wrong.  Sometimes, we loose our cool, calm, collected exterior and the cup pour-eth over.

What happens when we have a breakdown?  We pitch a hissy fit or a conniption fit.   These two types of tantrums are not becoming of a lady but sometimes, they happen.  The hissy fit is the milder of the two types.  Neither are pretty.   Doodlebug and I share on today’s tape about the differences.

Have you ever pitched a hissy or a conniption?

  1. Lord have mercy! I have pitched both kinds of fits – and I have even “pitched a fit and sat in it”! I hate to mention my last “fit” was just the “other day” which you know could mean anytime from day before yesterday to last month. 🙂

    Good stuff friend!
