It's Friday and I'm back home. Working in Jackson and this desk here looks like another war zone. Don't have time for much today. I must share things that I have learned living in Tennessee... have a great weekend all!
THINGS I HAVE LEARNED LIVING IN Tennessee: and a chuckle for those who do not reside in Tennessee.
Possums sleep in the middle of the road with their feet in the air.
There are 5,000 types of snakes and 4,998 live in Tennessee.
There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 live in Tennessee plus a couple no one's seen before.
If it grows, it sticks; if it crawls, it bites.
Onced and twiced are words.
It is not a shopping cart; it is a buggy.
People actually grow and eat okra.
"Fixinto" is one word.
There is no such thing as "lunch". There is only dinner and then there is supper.
Iced tea is appropriate for all meals and you start drinking it when you're two. We do like a little tea with our sugar!
Backards and forwards means "I know everything about you."
DJeet? is actually a phrase meaning "Did you eat?"
You don't PUSH buttons, you MASH them.
YOU KNOW YOUR FROM Tennessee IF:
You measure distance in minutes.
You use "fix" as a verb. Example: "I'm fixing to go to the store "
All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit, vegetable, grain, insect or animal.
You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.
You know what a "DAWG" is.
You carry jumper cables in your car...for your OWN car.
You only own four spices: salt, pepper, Tabasco and ketchup.
The local papers cover national and international news on one page, but require 6 pages for local gossip and sports. GO VOLS!!!!!
You think that the first day of deer season is a national holiday..
You know all four seasons: Almost Summer, Summer, still Summer and Christmas.
Going to Wal-mart is a favorite past time known as"goin' Wal-martin"or off to "Wally World".
You describe the first cool snap (below 50 degrees) as good pinto-bean weather.
A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola or pop...it's a Coke, regardless of brand or flavor. Example: "What kinda coke you want?"
Fried catfish is the other white meat.
We don't need no stinking driver's ed....if our mama says we can drive, we can drive.
You understand these jokes and share them to your friends from Tennessee
(and those who just wish they were).
Not EVERYONE can be a Tennessean; it's an art form and a gift from God!
